Navajo Churro Sheep
Navajo-Churro sheep are a rare primitive breed, descended from the Churra, an ancient Iberian breed prized by the Spanish for its remarkable hardiness, adaptability and fecundity.
It was from Churro wool that the early Rio Grande, Pueblo, and Navajo textiles were woven -- a fleece admired by collectors for its luster, silky hand, variety of natural colors and durability.
These sheep with their long staple of protective top coat and soft undercoat are well suited to extremes of climate. The flavor of the meat is incomparably superior, with a surprisingly low fat content.
Slow Food USA has put the Navajo Churro on the "Ark of Taste", naming it a national treasure.
Our sheep are rotated through our grass/clover pastures all year long and are proudly hormone-free, antibiotic free (except in the case of serious illness or injury), and come straight from our farm in Shelby County, Indiana. When necessary, they are supplemented with non-GMO grain mix.
Our lambs are taken to a USDA facility committed to humane practices. It is aged appropriately, then cut to your specifications.
