STAR THROWER FARM

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
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.
