Welcome to SUNRISE SHEEP & WOOL, a small farm located in Sunrise Township in East
Central Minnesota. We are located 6 miles East of North Branch, 1/2 mile South of Hiqhway 95.
The farm consists of 30 acres of pasture and 30 acres of Oak and Conifer forest.
It is the home to a flock of purebred Icelandic Sheep, who enjoy the grass and hay raised on our farm.
Our breeding plan emphasizes several different lines of
Leadersheep from Iceland, which include Ari, Biskup, Blesi, Geri, Joakim, Karl Philip, Leifur, Prestur, Skumur, and Tigull.
For those interested in Leadersheep, two utube videos about Leadersheep have recently become available:
Icelandic Leadersheep, Part 1 (8 min) and
Icelandic Leadersheep, Part 2 (9min).

In September of 2007, Sunrise Sheep & Wool served as the host farm for the 3rd SouthRam Icelandic Sheep VAI Seminar.
Fifteen registrants and a couple of spouses enjoyed two days of learning and fellowship. For those who missed
the seminar and those who want to relive part of it, a slide show of the festivities can be viewed
