About Mesta Meadows

Mesta Meadows is family-owned and operated by Ed and Terri Crowley. We started our farm in Versailles, Kentucky, but then we moved to Missouri.  Originally our farm was named Kentucky Meadows, but with our relocation to Missouri, we had to find a new name. So after a lot of thought, we came up with Mesta Meadows. Mesta is a name with a long sheep heritage. In Spain, the original Merino sheep grazed the Spanish southern plains in winter and the northern highlands in summer. The Mesta was an organisation of privileged sheep owners who developed the breed and controlled the migrations along cañadas reales suitable for grazing. The Mesta full name in Spanish is Honrado Concejo de la Mesta (honourable Council of the Mesta). In honour of the heritage of the sheep we raise (Merino, Rambouillet, and Cormo all of which are from Merino foundations), we thought Mesta Meadows would be a fantastic name for our farm.

Our flock is currently on a farm in Covington, Tennesse until we find our perfect farm in Missouri. Our goal is to produce the finest high-quality wool and farm to table products possible. We love our sheep, and are passionate about producing the finest quality wool and wool products. Our high quality wool breeds include Merino, Rambouillet, and Cormo sheep. We also raise Scottish Black Face sheep. 

 

We are a member of the National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP) as well as the National Rambouillet Breeder, Cormo, Delaine Merino Associations and Valaise Blacknose Associations.

 

Our breeding program is focused on constantly improving our wool quality, wool volume, and lamb production. We provide registered breeding rams and a limited number of ewes for sale each year.

 

 

High-Quality Wool

About our Flocks

We focus on raising very high-quality wool. Both Merino and Rambouillet wool is considered premier wool used in the finest fabrics. We average 20 micron (fine wool grade with a spinning count of 64s) fleeces from our Rambouillet and Delaine Merino sheep. The Rambouillet wool tends to have a little more ‘crimp’, giving it a little more bounce than Merino.  We are very excited about our recent edition to the farm, a naturally colored Merino who has a beautiful chocolate covered wool.
