Thistlewood Border Leicesters is dedicated to raising high quality breeding stock for the well informed shepherd.  We raise a small flock of extremely healthy sheep on a small family farm in southwestern Wisconsin. Our entire flock is test negative for OPP and free of Scrapie (see "About Us").

Our sheep receive the individualized attention they need, and we are committed to providing our customers with  whatever assistance and expertise they may require.

We breed our sheep for outstanding fleeces, great production, and the classic Border Leicester look as shown in our pictures.
