Ewetopia - Registered Suffolk Sheep and Commerical Suffolk/Texel Crosses
Lynn McKay of Woolly Acres and Arnie Droogh of Droogh's Holsteins have joined together and formed a new division of their existing farming enterprises and named it Ewetopia Farms. Together, we have utilized our extensive knowledge of livestock management and production to develop a sheep farm that we believe will fill a niche in the expanding sheep industry which demands fast-growing, moderately-sized, low-maintenance sheep who will be able to perform equally well in commercial and purebred flocks alike. After several years of intensive research into various sheep breeds, we are convinced that Suffolk sheep will fulfill these requirements.
Ewetopia Farms is located just north of Kingston, Ontario. We put much care into our sheep production and all the devotion to detail we can will be put into our sheep maintenance.
Visitors are always encouraged and welcomed to the farm. Newcomers will be greeted in the yard by our two Border Collies (Jill and Shade) who like to inspect everyone who comes on the property. Jill is the mother of a long line of working Border Collie pups (some who have gone on to win sheep herding competitions) and is now retired and enjoys her life as farm sentinel. Shade is one of her happy-go-lucky pups who likes to act tough but prefers to elicit as much attention from visitors as possible. Our ram pastures are protected by our two llamas and alpaca. They are aloof yet attentive animals that watch over everything that goes on at the farm - and no, they do not spit! On a walk over to the ewe pastures, visitors will be accosted by our two Maremma/Great Pyrenees guardian dogs (Spook and Barney). These two were born with sheep and live with only the sheep. They are friendly with people but we discourage strangers from being overly affectionate with them as we want the dogs to maintain their inborn instincts to protect and not become pets.
