Island View Farm is a small, traditional, pasture-raised sheep farm on the seaside coast of Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Our small flock of Hog Island and Suffolk sheep give us the opportunity to offer events, demonstrations, and educational events on: traditional sheep farming, fiber processing, as well as the historical importance of sheep farming on the Eastern Shore and Barrier Islands.

We offer events and demonstrations throughout the year for lambing, shearing, pasture management, fiber processing and use, as well as special historical and educational events. Depending on time of the year, we also offer farm visits by appointment only. Please email or call for more information!

Artichokes and figs for sale when available as well as grass-fed Hog Island lamb and mutton. Also visit the website for the art/fiber portion of our farm at
