Squam Farm Sheep
The sheep were brought to Squam Farm in 2005 with the goal of assessing the effectiveness of grazing as a management tool for restoring and maintaining grassland habitat. Simply stated, the research is designed to determine what the sheep will eat, what they won't eat and the effects on the terrain by having the sheep present. The goal is to convert the knowledge gained from this research to practical applications on various Foundation properties. The Squam Farm flock of Romney, Cotswold, and Romney-Cotswold crossbreeds now totals fifty-seven sheep and one full time shepherd.
