Buffalo, is what some claimed when they first spotted Donatello, Eureka and Black Jack. Well these were observations of folks who’s closest encounters with even cattle, has been a Big Mac.

NO, those aren’t baby buffalos, they’re babydoll sheep. A herd of three have taken up residence in Wine Tree Farm’s Vineyard and we’ve let them loose to graze amongst the vines to reduce the weeds and grasses that compete with the vines for the nutrients of the soil.

The sheep are small enough so that they don’t quite reach the cordons and they only eat ‘green’. Unlike goats, they don’t climb, so the vines will be safe!

This is an experiment to see how well they work. In Spring when the vines start budding, we’ll see if we’re able to keep them in the vineyard, year round. If this works, we will get more, as 3 will only make a dent in the robust vegetation in the Vineyard!

The 3 are: Black Jack – he is a black ram and the biggest, then there is Donatello, who is also black, but a smaller ram, lastly we have the white one called Eureka, the smallest and a wether.

We purchased Eureka from Penny Smith of Penwinkle Farms in Plymouth (http://penwinklefarms.com/) and Black Jack and Donatello came from Pennys Neighbor, Kammie.
