2019 Review

Anchorage Farm  did not take sheep to the Maryland Sheep and  Wool Festival in 2019. after a run of twenty-five years with only  a year or two skipped.  Nor did we go to the Great Lakes Show and Sale, nor  the Big E nor  the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, our former haunts.  All our purebred sales were from the farm, and are likely to be that way from now on.  We did sell fleeces at the NYSSWF.  Below is he text of  our ad in the Dec 2019 Romney Ramblings. 

                                                                      RECESSIVE-COLORED       WHITE        DOMINANT-COLORED

                                                                                 “We do not show anymore…….but our genetics sure do”
