Navajo-Churro Sheep … in New England
While traveling in New Mexico in 1991, I became intrigued by the story of the Navajo-Churro, an endangered species, which had been reduced to a population of less than 600 in the early 1970s.
I returned to Vermont with six Churro sheep in the back of a pick-up truck.
Now my goal is to encourage the growth of this elegant and spirited breed within New England by informing, educating, and selling breeding stock to any interested parties. I am an active member of the Navajo-Churro Sheep Association. Our mission at Land & Lamb is to nurture Navajo-Churro sheep, to promote their survival and continuance as one of the oldest and hardiest breeds in North America.
We sell breeding stock from six unrelated purebred bloodlines as well as grease fleece, washed and carded batts, and 3′ x 4′ pieces of felt (natural colors, 1 to 1.25 pounds each). Felt bags are available through www.LanaDura.com
Thanks for your interest.
