Welcome To The Bent Nail Farm

Our small family farm is a pasture based venture raising Katahdin Sheep and beef cattle. We established Kat's Katahdins in 2003. We received SFCP status in September of 2004. With a humble start of three ewes and their lambs, we quickly grew into the flock we have today. Our goals are to provide quality registered breeding stock with an emphasis on strong, well developed frames, superior mothering traits, balanced rate of gains and parasite resistance. One of our early mentors' advice to us is with Katahdins, "less is more". We have modified that opinion to fit our own operation. Katahdins are widely adaptable. Different shepherds have widely varying methods of raising their sheep to meet their goals. Our philosophy is; we want our sheep to work for us, not the other way around. We believe we can get the best results with minimal inputs but not skimping on the important items.
