Welcome to EK Sheep!
EK Sheep is located on an old dairy farm outside of the small town of Grasston, Minnesota. The farm is home to a flock of white and naturally colored Lincolns. With 176 acres the sheep are offered plenty of clean pasture to spend their days.
EK Sheep started in August of 2007 as an FFA SAE (supervised agriculture experience) project. The original flock of seven ewes purchased out of Wisconsin has since expanded to a flock of 70! This small business is jointly owned and managed by Eric and Kelly Froehlich.
Both of us share a passion for sheep, are active members in the FFA, Minnesota Lamb and Wool Junior Association, National Lincoln Sheep Breeders Association, American Sheep Industry Association and are graduates from the Academy for Science and Agriculture high school. Currently we are college students. Eric is attending Anoka Ramsey Community College in Cambridge, and Kelly is attending the University of Minnesota.
We are very passionate for the care and well-being of the animals; they are always offered fresh water, good nutrition, and shelter with clean bedding. The results are evident in happy healthy sheep and wonderful wool. Our flock offers a variety of natural colors from pure white, silver/grey, to black. Are animals are sheared twice a year; fall and spring.
EK Sheep intends to establish itself through raising purebred registered Lincoln Longwool sheep. The flock is carefully hand selected to maintain high standards for the purpose of breeding, showing, and wool production.
