Hello. I'm Sally, the owner and creator of
Laughing Sheep Farm located outside historic
Lincoln, NM. My greatgrandfather arrived in Water
Valley, Texas from Ireland in the late 1800's and
began raising sheep. My father and his father,
outstanding ranchers, developed the Brangus breed
but in 1980 I started my farm and preferred
farming over ranching and sheep over cattle. My
flock has been developed in the past 18 years to
being very large animals for meat, not wool. Over
many years I developed handling techniques to
raise livestock under very low stress conditions.
Some techniques seem strange, and one day I told
my family that my sheep were laughing at me. The
name stuck; thus, Laughing Sheep Farm was born.
Our sheep, cattle, pigs, bison and chickens are
all raised on grass, just like it was done 100
years ago. Proper aging insured the most
tender and highest quality meat. Low stress,
proper gentle handling and outstanding nutrition
is the main addition to 100 years ago. We do not
use appetite stimulants, hormones or antibiotics
in the meats we sell.
Laughing Sheep Farm raises our livestock from
birth through their entire life. Not only are all
our animals grass fed (even the chickens), our
livestock have little need for medical
intervention (anti-biotics, hormones, appetite
stimulants or other chemicals) because of their
low stress home. Our animals are kept in a very
healthy environment, mentally and physically. Many
farms and ranches boast of the chemical free
meats, but seldom address the animals' mental
health. A stress free environment is the key to a
healthy animal. Exercise, nutrition and happy
animals take a bit more time and management. We
will treat, doctor or repair an animal in a safe
and humane method. These products are not offered
through our store, but each animal is allowed to
stay until a more adequate home is found. We're a
direct market farm in every sense of the
word. Shop your local farm for clean, safe,
super healthy foods. We’re very child
Our livestock only have one bad day.
The original sheep growers, Mr.
and Mrs. Jack Canning of Eden Texas, have left
us with many of their recipes for meat glazes,
rubs, bastes and marinades. We made these from
the produce and herbs grown right here at the
farm. These items can all be purchased from our
