Welcome to Gansvoort Farm!

My farm is located in New York’s Hudson Valley, a few hours north of New York City. I've been raising 100% grassfed sheep using intensive rotational grazing on organically-managed pastures with humane and sustainable practices since 2002.

Last year I decided to stop raising my own sheep but there are now more animals on the farm. A new neighbor, Dirty Dog Farm, is grazing some of their beef herd here starting last spring, and Ben and Lindsey of Hearty Roots Community Farm are now raising sheep here with me helping to train their shepherd, Zuri. The first 15 Dorset-Texel ewes just arrived at the end of September and are settling in right near the house! I take pride in managing my land using methods that restore soil carbon and fertility, protect water quality and biodiversity, and provide a healthy, safe and natural environment for livestock. And although I don't have my own sheep here anymore, I am very excited to be collaborating with my neighbors to continue to produce healthy food!

*** Wool Comforters have arrived! ***

Wool comforters made from the spring 2021 shearing at a nearby sheep farm are now available at Hearty Roots across the road from my farm. Supplies are limited! See more pictures by clicking on link at left "Wool comforters and lamb pelts". As the new Hearty Roots flock grows here at Gansvoort, I hope to continue to make these wonderful comforters from the wool of sheep raised right here on my pastures in future years.

***** Sheep pelts! ***

There are still a few pelts from the last of my own flock for sale through Hearty Roots Farm Store across the road. It will be a few years before there are more from the new flock so consider buying one now - They make wonderful Christmas presents!
