Wolftree Farm

About the Farm

Wolftree Farm is in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region on the slopes between the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and Finger Lakes National Forest. The 92 acres are a mixture of field, forest, and stream. They are a diverse operation producing meat and fiber from Icelandic sheep, honey from their apiary and pick-your-own blueberries. Their cultural and husbandry practices are based on organic farming principles where organic matter (whether from animal manure, cover crops or composts) is the nutrient source for our pastures and crops.  Insects and disease-causing organisms are a reality in any farming system.  They encourage beneficial insects to thrive on our farm and utilize approved compounds when they are merited.  Besides their role as a fiber and food source, the sheep are an integral management tool for renovating their old fields.
