World Shepherd will mobilize teams that reach out to rural and impoverished areas of the Americas to partner in the creation of animal husbandry systems and attendant lamb meat businesses. We will use our sheep as a means of communication to allow us to touch the lives of others.
These production systems will be based on local pasture systems and will use the least amount of human consumable grain possible and the World Shepherd system will have low environmental impact.
World Shepherd will build and maintain a destination address for extensive educational experiences.

Doc (What’s Up?) is our faithful companion and potential show dog.
When our children were born, we made a decision to use our farm to produce meat and to begin teaching values. Through the years, we have grown our knowledge, our flock, and our business. Today we rotate animals on a variety of pastures to make full use of the grass and natural resources.
What we believe
We believe in excellence. We are obligated to care for God’s creation and to leave the land better than we found it. We are expected to give back in response to the gifts we have been given. We are called to live in a respectful, responsible and reasonable manner. Our World Shepherd Project exemplifies those values.
