Sheep

Corriedale sheep reside at Seeley Creek Valley Farm. The foundation for the flock came from Bear Farm in Hector, New York. The Corriedale was developed to produce a dual purpose breed for both wool and meat. The breed originated in the 1800’s in New Zealand. They were first imported into this country in 1914 and in 1916 the American Corriedale Association was founded.
