Welcome to Gansvoort Farm!  

My farm is located in 
New York’s Hudson Valley, a few hours north of New York City. I raise sheep using intensive rotational grazing on organically-managed pastures with humane and sustainable practices.  All my lamb is 100% grass-fed - absolutely no grain is used for lambs or ewes. I take pride in producing quality products using methods that restore soil fertility, protect water quality and biodiversity, and provide a healthy, safe and natural environment for my animals.

You are welcome to visit the farm –  I enjoy taking interested people on pasture walks to show them how I rotate the flock, talk about sustainable animal health, and share the beauty of the land.  Just contact me in advance and we'll arrange a time! The ewe shown here is one of my keeper ewes, grazing through the early snow that fell on November 15th.  These ewes are made for this weather and are glad to have a few more weeks of green grass before they go onto dry hay for the next four and a half months!

*** Wool Comforters! ***  

The 2018 comforters are back from the mill!  This year I ordered some made with my colored wool, which are really special looking. Shown here is a white comforter next to the new color which is black wool blended with moorit then covered with white muslin.  It ends up looking very modern.  Colored comforters are sold out!  There are a few white comforters left at Hearty Roots Farm store across the road from my farm.  See more pictures and prices by clicking on link at left "Wool comforters and lamb pelts".

***** Icelandic pelts! A few white pelts left. See them at Hearty Roots Farm Store across the road or E-mail me for details. gansvoort@gmail.com

I am now sold out of custom lamb for fall 2018.  Plan ahead next year!  

***Ground mutton and Merguez sausage links are back from the processor!.    I also have hogget by the cut.  Hogget is what yearling lambs are called in England and Australia.  More flavorful than lamb but still more tender than a full grown sheep.  Fabulous for a leg of lamb or shoulder roast.  See link at left on Ordering Lamb.

***Felted wool, approx 3 ft x 5 ft squares, all natural colors.  Use as a rug, a throw for the couch, or make pillows, slippers, etc! I have about a dozen left.
