learn more

We are so happy you could drop by today! Maybe you're here to learn. Maybe you're here to share. Maybe you're here for both! 

Regardless, we're happy you are here! 


We are the broderick's! Raising Katahdin hair sheep, Kunekune pigs, family milk cows, loving nature, AND sharing happiness. 

We are a family ranch dedicated to shepherding our flock and sharing our blessed mess. Join us as we all learn and grow together!

Maybe it's about sheep, maybe its about kunekune pigs, having a family milk cow or livestock guardian dogs, maybe it's about life in general - regardless of the "maybe" you are sure to be laughing either with us or at us as we navigate this thing we all call life. 

From country-bumpkin, to city-slickers, to shepherds - and so much in between, the roads to our here and now have been one for the books.
