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!

I am now sold out of lamb for fall 2018.  Plan ahead next year!  But ground mutton will be back for the processor in mid December.  Great for merguez sausage or shepherd's pie. See link at left on Ordering Lamb

I have 100% grassfed lamb for sale beginning in September each fall, sold as half or whole carcasses, cut to order.  Please see the link at left on "ordering lamb", then e-mail me and I'll be in touch.  

***** Icelandic pelts! One black left, and lot of white! E-mail me for details. gansvoort@gmail.com

*** Wool Comforters! -  The 2018 comforters are expected back from the mill any day, just as the weather turns cool!  This year I ordered some made with black or brown wool, which are really special looking.  See link at left for details. 

***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.
