A working sheep farm with about 200 sheep

Lismore Sheep Farm Wool Shop

 Welcome to the Lismore Sheep Farm Wool Shop web site. Our farm is located just off the Sunrise Trail (Route 6), along the beautiful Northumberland Shore in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada. We have a working sheep farm with about 200 sheep. Our sheep are mainly Dorset crosses which produce a beautiful soft fleece which we use in many of our products available on the farm. We have a small flock of purebred Suffolk sheep with strong Brittish bloodlines . You may recognize the familiar black face along with a short stocky frame which helps produce great lambs for meat or for crossing with other breeds.


The Shop is open by appointment only for the winter months. Contact us by phone or e mail to arrange a visit. You can also order on line and pick up at the shop or have it mailed.

Visitor Barn is now closed for the season.

Our website is open all of the time and we will be gradually replenishing our stock, so keep checking back for updates. If you would prefer to make an order by phone please contact us.


We now have whole or half lambs ( cut up) availble in the shop. We will also have a limited number of individual cuts including leg and shoulder roasts, chops, ground, ribs and shanks . We are well stocked with lamb sausages. Contact us to place an order or for more information.

All of our sheep and lambs are humanely raised . They enjoy being outside grazing and breathing the salty air in the pasture overlooking the Northumberland Strait from early spring to late fall. The sheep and lambs are on a rotating grazing system so they are always being moved to fresh grass.

We also have whole chickens availble for your freezer. Stock up now!!!!



For the winter months we will just be attending the Lunenburg market once a month, and we are usually there the last Thursday of the month. Our next date will be Thursday January 26th.
