The Jacob Sheep is listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as threatened. They are a stunning black and white or lilac and white spotted sheep. Both males and females are multi-horned. Most commonly they will have two to four horns, but occasionally they will have up to six. They are a small, multi-purpose sheep producing a mild-flavored, lean meat, as well as high quality wool for the fiber enthusiast.  We have found them to be very healthy and hardy sheep with great mothering instincts and carefree birthing. 

The Jacob Sheep is an ancient, primitive breed and takes its name from the Bible. In the Book of Genesis, the story is told of how Jacob selected the spotted sheep from Laban's flock as his wages. This is the first recorded account of selective breeding. Spotted, horned sheep have been documented in Egyptian wall art dating back to 1800 BC.

Our foundation flock of Jacob Sheep are registered with the JSBA.  We strive to produce quality lambs that conform to the JSBA standard.  Lambs are born in the spring and are available for sale in the fall after they have been assessed for JSBA registration elgibility.
