Hopestead Hill Farm was one of the founding members of New York Specialty Lamb, a marketing cooperative effort formed several years ago between several central NY sheep farmers. At the time, NYSL members had over 1500 breeding ewes and represented over 100 years of experience in raising specialty lamb.

The goal was to provide the best tasting, freshest lamb to our select markets all year round.

All of the member farmers had similar commercial Dorset foundation stock and all followed a similar feeding protocol, ensuring consistent quality and flavor. Each farm was managed on an accelerated lambing schedule to ensure year round supply.  

 The program was successful and  could be started up again, if market conditions warranted.
