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.
