Since 2005, Mendocino Organics has been raising sheep. Today, we have a flock of 100 ewes – a motley crew of various breeds, ultimately being bred for our particular location and for quality meat. In the winter at Heart Arrow Ranch, they graze among the dormant petite syrah, cabernet, and zinfandel. During spring and early summer, they pasture throughout the surrounding rangeland. Once the rangeland turns brown in the hot summer, we take the sheep to irrigated pasture that we lease in Potter Valley. Our fluffy livestock guardian dogs protect this wild bunch of sheep.
