The Lambs Are Ready, Are You?

About 10 years ago John noticed that people would park their cars on Mullan Rd so that they could watch the newborn lambs jump, run and play in the field. It was quite a sight and soon it was becoming a danger to park on Mullan Rd. John decided that he would open up the ranch and let people come in at a designated time every night (except Sun) and watch the lambs play. It soon became an event called the running of the Lambs. Later we added on a short educational tour, a petting zoo, a small store and a porta poty. It was such a hit that each year around April we do it again. People enjoy so much that we started selling products from our animals and keepsakes of the experience. Running of the lambs has been such a hit that starting this year we will have to have people reserve their slot so we don’t have 300 people on 1 night. Come learn and have some fun with us. Watch the updates so you can plan your visit.

Petting Zoo

Come join us for some one on one interaction with the babies. Some of our babies have circumstances that leave them motherless. When this happens we get the opportunity to love and raise them ourselves which makes them very comfortable with people. Come have a rare experience of petting, holding and cuddling a lamb or a goat kid.

Feeding And Helping Hands

Discover New Connections

Where does your food come from? How are the animals that you eat raised and treated?  Are they given access to good feed, pasture and clean water? What happens as your food makes it’s way to the store? We welcome you to join us and find the answers to these questions and so many more. We educate the community on where their wool comes from, if it is made in the US, what happens to the wool while it is on the sheep. Do you know what is required in raising 100’s of animals? How are things different then the raising of a pet? Come join other like-minded people and we can visit about these questions or you are also invited to spend time connecting to being on a farm.

Running Of The Lambs Farm Tours

We would love to have you visit us and see what it is all about! To make things easier on our staffing, please RSVP to what nights you are interested in coming out. We want to make sure we have enough support to keep this event as engaging as possible. When you come to the running of the lamb’s event, please be mindful of the guidelines for being a responsible visitor and having a safe, fun time.

  1. Drive slow……..remember, there are children, dogs and other animals running free on the farm.
  2. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing that you won’t mind getting dirty (Remember this is a farm, cowboy boots are brown for a reason, and when it comes to clothing, goats will eat anything!)
  3. Pregnant women are to avoid Toxoplasmosis by taking care around cat boxes. Some pregnant and birthing sheep can also pose a problem. Therefore, because of the possibility we would like pregnant women to be mindful and participate as per their own comfort level.
  4. Please don’t feed the animals climb on fences or put your hands through the fences, (fingers look like carrots).
  5. Listen to the directions given by our event helpers.
  6. Please only go where you are supposed to (Please respect the privacy of those that live on the farm).
  7. Please watch your children (we do care about their safety).
  8. Leave the gates as you find them.
  9. Please be careful when leaving as there are people everywhere.
  10. No smoking due to the potential health issues to others.
  11. Have FUN!
