It's lambing season at Leyden Glen Farm!
Leyden Glen Farm is a producer of grass-fed lamb located in the upper Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, on the southern Vermont border. Nestled amongst the rolling hills, it is owned and operated by Mark Duprey and Kristin Nicholas and their daughter Julia Nicholas Duprey. We have been raising sheep since 1980 when we purchased four Romney ewe lambs and brought them home in the back of rickety pick-up truck. Those four Romney sheep are the basis of our flock today. Over the years we have introduced different breeds of sheep to create our own unique flock which thrives on the soils and hills we farm here in western Massachusetts.
We use no hormones or antibiotics. We practice rotational grazing during the growing season. When fresh grass is not available due to the weather, the sheep eat hay which Mark harvests during the summer months. Our goal is to produce the best tasting grass-fed meat while helping to reclaim abandoned and unused farm and wood lands. Our sheep have reclaimed tens of acres and have helped to keep the beautiful New England hilltown vistas green and open. Through our rotational grazing practices, our sheep have helped to increase the health and fertility of the soil.
Our self-serve farm store is open 7 days a week during daylight hours. We sell frozen lamb meat by the piece or by the whole lamb. Need to make sure we have a certain cut, call ahead.
Live animals are also available for religious feasts but please call for availability.
We look forward to sharing our delicious lamb with your family soon.
