Berryhill Farm

About the Farm

In just 10 years, The Berryhill Farm evolved from experimenting with sheep to control grass to winning the coveted Maryland Sheep Show Supreme Champion Fleece award with one of their registered Leicester Longwool ewes. 

Few people have more fun with shepherding than David Berryhill, who is invested in saving this rare breed that is now on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy “critical” list.
