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
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.
