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 July 15th 2019.  The flock spent an afternoon and night in a field that had been hayed in early June before continuing on to a very shady paddock for the heat wave we had.  Everyone looks super healthy and happy - come see the 60 lovely white and black and white lambs!  E-mail me to be sure you are on the list for custom-cut grassfed lamb this fall.  Supplies will be limited!


*** Wool Comforters! ***  

Still a few comforters left, lots more coming in July:  Last 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.  I ordered more this year.  They will be at Hearty Roots Farm store across the road from my farm starting in September.  See more pictures and prices by clicking on link at left "Wool comforters and lamb pelts".  If you want to reserve a comforter for fall '19, e-mail me.





***** 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!.    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.
