Continuing our commitment to an educational mission, Maybury Farm is proudly raising Heritage Breeds.
We have registered Jacob sheep and 4 new lambs born this spring!
Heritage breeds are traditional livestock breeds that were raised before industrial agriculture became
a mainstream practice. They were carefully selected and bred over time to develop traits that made them well-adapted to local environments. Traditional, historic breeds retain essential attributes for survival and self-sufficiency – fertility, foraging ability, longevity, maternal instincts, ability to mate naturally, and resistance to diseases and parasites.
Jacobs coats are white with black spots, and they most often have two sets of horns - although they
may have only two or up to six. Both sexes are horned.
Be sure to check them out on your next visit to the farm. You can also purchase their wool, or roving,
in our general store for spinning or crafts.
