Valais Blacknose Sheep
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Camanna's Petite Paradise! Do to our upcoming move to AZ, Anna and her family are housing our VBN project and working with us to continue our mission of developing this amazing breed in the US!! We look forward to sharing .
We are excited about our big project here at Foxglove Farm! We have become involved in the Valais Blacknose breed-up program, using imported semen from the UK from high quality, handsome Valais Blacknose Sheep rams. VBNs barely exist in the US- we were part of the very first importation of these gorgeous creatures' genetics, and we are now getting beautiful F2 (3/4) lambs and incredible F3 (7/8) lambs in 2021!! We are in love with the real VBN look coming through!!! Eventually, after upbreeding for multiple generations from Finn foundation stock, we will have purebred Valais Blacknose Sheep available!! Photos below are from the Laparascopic Artificial Inseminations of our ewes. Our stock is registered with the VBSS.
See For Sale page for available 2021 lambs

These are examples of F2 lambs (3/4 VBN. Forming waiting list for 2022! We will have F3 ram lambs, a few F2 adult ewes available In Aug 2022.
All of our ewes have been bred to assorted VBN sires with imported semen. They are due the first week of May 2021. We have a pretty long waiting list, but if you want to be included on that, please email us! We will have F2 ram lambs, F3 ram lambs, and possibly an F2 ewe or ewe lamb available depending on how many ewes we have born.
