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 carbon and 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 picture at right was taken on Dec 3, 2019 a few days after the Thanksgiving snow storm.  The ewes are in the winter paddock on hay now and grazing is done.  They've been separated into two groups for breeding with my two purebred rams - a Texel for meat and an Icelandic for lovely pelts.   Lambs sold out for fall 2019! E-mail me to get on the list for next year. See "Ordering lamb" at left.

*** Wool Comforters! ***  

The new comforters are back from the mill just in time for the cold weather!:  I ordered some made with my colored wool again this year, 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.  All sizes are now 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! See a selection of them at Hearty Roots Farm Store across the road or E-mail me for details. gansvoort@gmail.com  

***Ground mutton at Hearty Roots Farm Store!***    

***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.
