Allen Hoyle grew up on a dairy farm and coached winning 4-H Dairy Bowl teams when his daughters were high school students, but in 1993, he bought 9 male sheep for wool production, leading him down a whole new path of farming.
For some time, he sold wool to nuns for spinning into yarn, but the cost for shearing was expensive and led him to research sheep raised for meat instead. He sold the wool producers to a neighbor and purchased 52 Katahdin Hair Sheep to start his flock.
