Breeding season began on October 8th. We are breeding 15 ewes this year. Breeding line up can be found on the RAM PAGE

We began our Jacob Sheep adventure in 1994, joined JSBA in 1995 and began to build a registered flock to be proud of. We've gathered sheep from all across the country - New York to Oregon and points between during the last 15 years. And we've sent sheep to New York and Oregon and points between.

Here at Patchwork, we believe strongly in preserving the diversity of the primitive American Jacob Sheep. I strive for a diverse flock - both genetically and visually, while still staying within the standards of JSBA.

I believe that the primitive Jacob Sheep is a hardy sheep and hardiness, easy lambing, and mothering skills to be of prime importance when selecting sheep. I have chosen to continue with the traditional deerlike old style Jacob Sheep.

Selection criteria at Patchwork leans strongly towards excellent handspinning fleeces and outstanding horns. I select ewes with strong, well placed horns, including strong laterals, on a feminine head and only use rams from a maternal line of four strong horns. Flock members are chosen and retained with an eye to both their ancestors and their descendants.

I believe strongly in the benefit of a conservation minded organization like JSBA and encourage you to check out www.jsba.org
