Welcome to Big Boulder Farm. We are located near Vanderhoof, the heart of beautiful British Columbia. 

We take pride in the animals we raise and are always working at improving each breed following the breed standard of perfection. We began with our blackbelly sheep and now have included mouflons and painted deserts into our flock. If you have any questions about the animals we raise please feel free to contact us.

Our lambs often sell out fast. We start our waitlists  January 1st of each year for our livestock.  After lambing (mid March into April) we contact people on our waitlist in order based on availability.  Any lambs not spoken for will be listed on our For Sale page.

On the farm nothing is wasted. We work at practicing sustainable living. Animals that do not make good breeding stock are used to provide on the table. We value knowing what goes on our table from beginning to end.

Our sheep are all hair sheep. They naturally shed out their winter coats in the spring so there is no need for shearing. You also do not need to tail dock them as there is no wool for their feces to be caught in.
The sheep breeds we have here are very hardy and thrive in a variety of climates on a huge assortment of feed. They are excellent as a clean up crew or keeping grass mowed down. 
Have these low maintenance sheep already peaked your interest? My final key point that makes them an excellent choice to raise, They are resistant to many disease and parasites that people vaccinate or medicate many other sheep breeds for, therefor there is much less need for chemical intervention. 
On top of these, they are a beautiful sheep to look at. Why would we pick any other breeds here at Big Boulder Farm? 

For the commercial sheep farmer they do not have high lamb weights for the meat market. However what they lack in size they make up for in flavor. They have a wonderful mild taste that can please even those that are not fond of lamb. And these sheep can be processed at a later age without developing a muttony taste. If you are interested in any of our processed lamb please feel free to contact us to put yourself on our list. 

We do our best to keep our website up to date. However, livestock for sale will be posted on our Facebook Page first. If you are interested in our animals please take the time to follow our page . If you are interested in purchasing lambs or other livestock from us you can use our contact form on our website or email directly We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
