My name is Kate Callahan, and my husband, John Moore, and I are the proud owners of Brentwood Farm here in Suffolk, Virginia.
After successfully getting 3 kids graduated through school, we went on a well-deserved trip to grand ole Ireland. We never suspected how life changing that would be. So, my husband and I decided to put our house up for sale and move to our wonderful 28-acre farm.
Brentwood Farm began with a mission to respectfully raise earth friendly grass fed lamb. We purchased our first 3 sheep (Felicity, Lilley and Maude) in March of 2012. Now, our once small farm has grown to over 60 sheep, with the goal to reach capacity of 30 producing ewe and 100 lambs a year. This will provide our community with healthy pasture raised lamb and beautiful wool roving.
With the hopes of adding a wonderfully versatile plant to our farm, we started growing lavender in 2014. We now have fresh and dried lavender bundles seasonally available as well as our all natural body products, the Wooly Ewe all natural body care line.
We are having a great time learning our new farm life. Both John and I began this venture with no farming influence. We have a great community around us that has helped us to navigate this new world, along with many long evenings reading (days are full of doing) and lots of trial and error. My father, who was raised on a farm in upstate New York, has been invaluable with his wealth of knowledge and creativity for a variety of projects.
We really look forward to the continual growth we are experiencing. I would like to give a special thanks to all those that have been a part of this amazing adventure. My husband and I find ourselves happier than we could ever have imagine as we move forward in our grace filled life here at Brentwood Farm.
