Katahdin sheep generally twin. The majority of lambs offered are one of a twin or triplet.

Katahdin sheep are 'hair sheep': they naturally shed their fleece in the spring and don't require shearing. The purpose of the breed is to efficiently and economically produce meat. We chose Katahdins for a number of reasons: 

Significantly higher parasite tolerance than wooled sheep 

Ability to breed non-seasonally for an 'accelerated' lambing program 

Ewes are easy lambers, exhibit strong maternal instincts, and are good milkers 

Carcasses are well-muscled, meat is lean and mild-flavored 

Their coat can be any color or pattern! They're beautiful animals.
