Welcome to the Star Thrower Farm website! Our farm is home to a flock of pasture raised, purebred Icelandic sheep and their guardian llamas. Pastures are a combination of native grasses, wildflowers and alfalfa. This nutritious forage adds complexity to the flavor of the rich sheep's milk cheeses produced at the farm's creamery. Icelandic sheep do not give a large quantity of milk but do produce a very high quality milk that is excellent for cheesemaking.

In addition to their rich milk, Icelandic sheep are known for their beautiful fleeces prized by handspinners, felters and other fiber artists. Because our flock is pastured, their fleeces are very clean with little vegetive matter. Visit the Store section of this website for our current selection of raw fleeces and processed fiber products.

Icelandic sheep are called "triple purpose" because in addition to their rich milk and beautiful fleece, they are reknowned for their delicious and mild flavored meat. Once you try Icelandic lamb you better understand the meaning of the word "gourmet."
Thank you for visiting our website and thank you for your interest in our farm, sheep, cheese and fiber products.

The Crow River Chapter of the Sustainable Farming Association asked Star Thrower Farm to participate in the making of a promotion video which explains the goals of this very worthwhile group.

We have purchased a beautiful little farmstead in Kansas for our newest venture! We are in the process of renovating a 1920's vintage farmhouse and have planted our first lavender field, fruit trees, berries and grapes. Stay tuned for updates as we prepare the pastures for the arrival of our sheep Spring, 2016.
