Who we are

Ramsay Farms is situated in the northeastern part of Ottertail County, near Perham, Minnesota. This family farm of 320 acres has been in the Ramsay family for five generations, dating back to 1892. Today our farm prides itself on our Simmental cattle, Shetland Sheep and BlueFaced Leicester sheep. We strive to breed animals that closest match the breed standards given to them, and mindful of production, health and longevity in our animals as well.
In spring of 2016, there was a purchase of 32 acres in Green County, Wisconsin to accommodate Garrett for his work in that region. The animals have for the most part been moved to that location. Both locations will work in tandem to continue educating and promoting these animals and this way of life.

Buttons' surprise!



Winter Sky Buttons, a lovely yearling ewe gave birth this morning to a very adorable moorit ram lamb. Still learning the name game with patterns so I'll let you be the judge! I was just thinking about when she was bred and when she was to lamb and if in fact it was any time soon. Her and I must be on the same wavelength :) I walked in this morning to find him up and running around already! What a morning!

Cleo finally commits to lambing!

Well I can finally rest easy(ier). After what seemed like eons of waiting. Cleo was as big as a house and I was thinking MAYBE triplets, but she still decided to give me two. Interestingly last year she also had a black ram and a moorit ewe so now she is seeming to carry on a tradition :)

My very first lambs!



After what seemed like eternity and thoughts of doubtcreeping into my mind, my first ewe finally decided to bless me with not one baby, but TWO! And to top it off they are both ewe lambs and adorable! Jasmine Phoenix is a first time mother who is very attentive to her babies and I couldn't be happier with the end results! The first girl is a grey katmoget and the second is a moorit blettet who looks like she will go Ag and be a musket when older. Time will tell. I'm still learning the names of the colors :)
