At Seven Springs, we believe in the importance of our connection to the community and environment. We are developing our farm for the purpose of raising heritage breed animals and heirloom vegetables. We have begun our journey with the Hog Island Sheep.
Descended from colonial sheep breeds brought to America in the 1600's, this breed originated on Hog Island, a barrier island off the coast of Virginia. The sheep numbered into the hundreds at the peak in the early 20th century, but are now categorized by the Livestock Conservancy as in 'critical' condition. The forest and grounds at Seven Springs are now home to one of the largest flocks of Hog Island Sheep in the country. We strive to maintain and grow the breed and encourage others to do the same!
