Woolley’s Lamb earns Premier’s Agrifood Innovation Regional Award

Woolley’s Lamb of Norfolk County is a Regional Award Winner in the Premier’s Awards for Agrifood Innovation Excellence.

If you spot sheep wandering between the cherry trees at Woolleys’ Lamb farm, don’t worry – they’re exactly where they’re supposed to be. For owners Carrie Woolley and Brett Schuyler, letting their grass-fed livestock graze freely amongst their fruit trees makes perfect sense.

The innovative process provides shade, shelter and space for the sheep to forage. In return, the grazing animals help improve soil health and save the operation more than $30,000 per year in grass-cutting costs. The eco-friendly approach demonstrates how farmers can create additional uses for their land, add a lucrative revenue stream and help meet Ontario’s demand for local, grass-fed lamb.
