What makes us different.....
Our flock was established in 2006 by integrating several animals with very separate and unique traits. We are active members of the Association & Ambassador for the breed. Our goal for our starter flock was to breed sheep with more substance and fleece quality than what we were seeing in the smaller built imported lines. (IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FINNSHEEP BREED CLINK ON THE FAQ LINK ABOVE.)
By breeding for larger rams and ewes. We combined their positive size with the nice tight fleeces, luster, and softness that some of the lighter sheep carried. The larger lambs are also very sought after in the meat market. See our Lamb Meat link above to order a sample of our wonderful FinnSheep lamb meat.
After having our brown ewes around and getting to work with their fleeces we fell in love with the richness and depth of the brown fiber. Because of that, we have devoted a large percentage of our flock in producing brown or fawn lambs. We currently produce over 50% of our yearly lambs as brown or fawn. Our breeding practice guarantees brown lambs for our customers. When purchasing a lamb from Eldorado farms, we are confident in providing you with a brown fleeced animal or one with very strong brown genetics for your future breedings.
We take pride in our flock, our current husbandry practices, and encourage visitors, questions, or comments at anytime. Our flock has been USDA inspected for the yearly voluntary Scrapie program. Scrapie & OPP free flock.

To insure the best fleeces to our customers, we also take extra care during shearing (which we do ourselves) and provide correct care to produce a quality product.
Being very close to our flock we take extra care in providing the best possible lambs to clients who truly want the best. We offer delivery, additional pictures, videos, pedigrees, micron-testing, and fleece grading
