Welcome to Hedgeapple Farm located in scenic Dallas County, just outside of Earlham, IA., which is about 25 miles west of Des Moines, Iowa.  We raise purebred Icelandic and Icelandic X  sheep for their outstanding meat and wool and their ability to thrive on pasture only.  Although we're not certified as organic, we strive to use organic methods to provide our customers with a quality, healthy product using intensive grazing.

We held our  shearing last October and have several fleeces available for sale. Some will be processed into roavings, bats and yarn which will be added to our site as well for sale.

For those interested in starting, expanding, diversifying or improving their Icelandic flock we'll have breeding stock available starting Spring, 2011 with our new lamb crop..  See our link for Breeding Stock for updates.

 In addition to our sheep we'll have broilers available this spring and summer.  These will be raised on pasture and fed organic feed.   Check our Broiler link for a picture of our chicken tractor and some background on our experience raising broilers.

There are also our bees which produce a wonderful tasting honey along with beeswax.  



Individual Cuts of Lamb

We're now  offering individual cuts of lamb although supply is limited for now.  We'll be able to expand our  offerings beginning in August.  Check ourt our poducts at the Lamb link.

Farm Fresh Eggs
We'll be expanding our laying flock this year after taking off last year.   We probably won't be producing enough eggs to sell until summer.  If  you're interested in eggs, email me at Scott or give me a call at 515-720-4309  I work in Des Moines so pickup at my work location or nearby  is also an option.


Check out our new product page under Wool/Fiber for our new fiber offerings including raw fleeces, batts  and woven items created by Lorraine.  Check it out at  Wool/Fiber.
