|Our flock here in Cove Orchard began in January 2006 with a mixed breed originating back to Troy's Grandfather William
Baimbridge of Elkton, OR. (Baimbridge Ranch) Grandpa passed away shortly after we relocated here in mid-2004. We've been
refining our breed/s over the last several years to produce a better and leaner meat, while maintaining quality wool. Texel
and Border Leicester breeds make up the majority of our flock the rest are cross breeds. Texels proving to be very efficient at
turning their feed into lean muscle meat and a large loin eyes. The fiber off our Texels works amazing for needle felting, in
addition to spinning and some wet felting. Our Border Leicester's dual purpose offers great meat production, and some
phenomenal wool, highly sought after by hand spinners and felter's across the globe. These great foraging breeds have
excelled well on our less than ideal acreage.
