 ABOUT US:

Our historic farm is located in the foothills of the Adirondack
Mountains in upstate New York.
The farm is named after its originator, Samuel Bailey.
General Bailey fought as one of George Washington’s
staff officers during the Revolutionary War.
After the war, the barns and house were built in 1798.
Later, General Bailey helped form what is now known as the New York National Guard.
Our farm is home to a large flock of natural color sheep being
raised for their beautiful wool.
Our business is dedicated to bringing you top quality products at reasonable prices.
