Home to beautiful Bluefaced Leicesters
Welcome to Tumble Creek Farm in sunny Central Oregon. We raise
award-winning Bluefaced Leicesters from domestic and UK bloodlines via
LAI (laproscopic artificial insemination).
Lovely fleeces in
both colored and white from pastured sheep are available in the fall of
each year, with white roving available year round. Our flock is
certified scrapie-free, enrolled in the export monitored program, OPP
tested negative, and our rams are codon 171 tested. Our sheep have found
new homes in Alaska, Canada, and around the continental United States.
Bluefaced Leicester sires are prized for their contributions to the
commercial flock. These crossbred lambs will show an increased length of
loin and lean growth, prolificacy and milkability, and greatly improved
fleece quality. The Bluefaced Leicester ewes are selected for maternal
competence, productivity, disease and parasite resistance.
handspinner with the fiber-producing flock using BFL genetics will be
rewarded with fleeces that have outstanding softness and handle, staple
length and luster, drape in knitted items and weavings, fantastic felt,
and vividly dyed fiber.
Tumble Creek Farm welcomes visitors to
the studio, barn and pastures. We have been at our present location
since 2005 improving our pasture in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains.
We have been located in Central Oregon since 1996 raising this beautiful
breed of sheep.
