Welcome to the online location of the KF-Acres operation. This website has proven year after year to be a valuable tool in public awareness, marketing, and merchandising of our breeding stock the products of fleece and meat. At KF-Acres we raise Oxford and Natural Colored sheep, as well as Shorthorn beef cattle. Unlike some flocks, we strive to maintain a modern, updated version of our website. We see no benefit to having a webpage that is outdated by 4 years. As a result, we have recently broke the International, as well as 20 state marker for selling breeding stock.
The year 2015 will mark the 15th year we have raised Oxfords, and the 11th for having Shorthorns. For the past 3 years we have been searching for a second breed to add to the operation, and have researched Naturally Colored sheep exclusively for the majority of that time frame. Without hesitation we started our set of black sheep during the fall of 2013, and have not looked back as we crested 2014! What started out as the desire to have something different, has flourished into a passion to be completely changed. In addition comes the avenue of selling fleeces from this new side of the flock, as well as from our Oxfords. It's been a wild ride, but our first year was deamed a success. As we move into our new year, we've changed the operation to allow for a once per year shearing, to increase the value, and demand of our fleeces! As always, a limited number of butcher lambs will be offered for consumption.
We’ll continue to breed, raise, and sell Oxford sheep- just not as many as we once did. We simply love the breed of sheep, and our genetics have been extremely good to us over the years. We will become more actively involved with the black sheep family of people, and potentially may add a second fleece sheep breed into the future. Those people and their mentalities- are extremely enjoyable to be around! In addition our custom trimming and fitting business is ever growing- and as a result we'd prefer to dedicate more quality time to those loyal customers.
Feel free to browse around, and be sure to check out our current stud ram page, as well as learn more about our new and exciting Natural Colored adventures!
Thank you for your time and for checking out our website!
