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.

moving.



In anticipation of the move coming up this weekend and the following, i've already brought sheep supplies, hay, and dog crates/supplies to be a bit more prepared for when they come. Thank you Mike, Kelly, and Aaron for helping me with the hay and keeping me calm during this stressful time!

The farm in the background is one of my neighbors, and my home is behind me in the photo. This photo was taken just before sunset. and I thought it was quite tranquil.

Moving to the land of cheese

I have tentatively secured a hobby farm in Green County, Wisconsin. The sheep will be moving there the first part of March, and the cattle most likely in the fall. There is a ton of work to be done, and lambs will be coming end of March! not much time to get ready, but its doable.

Photos will come soon!
