Welcome to Wellscroft Farm

We are a family-owned sheep farm located in the beautiful Monadnock Region of southern New Hampshire. Our sheep rotationally graze on pasture spring, summer and fall.

Wellscroft Farm our story

Since 1974, Wellscroft Farm has thrived as one of New England’s largest working sheep farms. Over the past forty years owner David Kennard, along with his shepherds, has brought Wellscroft Farm to where it is today. Over 13,000 lambs have been born on the farm, which now consists of a flock of roughly 200 commercial Dorset-Cross ewes. In 1999, Wellscroft Farm was honored to be awarded recognition as a New Hampshire Farm of Distinction.

In addition to the flock, David raises and trains Border Collies which he uses on the Farm every day. He is also widely known and praised throughout New England for his entertaining and informative herding demonstrations.

Our flock of 200 ewes are a commercial dorset-cross. We have chosen this cross for out-of-season breeding, good milking, fast growing ‘hot house’ and freezer lambs.
