The Spicy Lamb Farm raises seed stock production Dorset sheep, free range Rouen duck, bees, organic varieties of apples, pears, and plums, spicy herbs and vegetables, and flowers. This Cuyahoga Valley National Park farm is also the home of the Cuyahoga Valley Sheep Dog Trials, a proud sponsor of Urban Shepherds, and a Northcoast Lamb CoOp member. We invite you to enjoy our gourmet lamb and duck and wool and other products which are sold off the farm by appointment.
We welcome visitors only for special events, classes, and tours. Appointments are needed to shop for products. We are a small family farm which makes non-scheduled visits impossible when we are tending our livestock and working.
"A farm should be aesthetically, aromatically, and sensuously appealing. A place that is attractive to the senses. A farm shouldn't be producing ugly things. It should be producing beautiful things. We're going to eat them." --- Darwin Kelsey
The Spicy Lamb Farm celebrates the abundance of life with local food, fiber, and fun. The farm, originally built in 1914, is located on 12 acres in the Village of Peninsula in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP), surrounded by mature woodlands. This family farm has been run by the DeYoung family since 2007. In 2018, an additional 14 acres of pasture at Camp Ledgewood, down the road in the Village of Boston Heights, was leased from the Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio.
The Spicy Lamb Farm is located at the dead end of Akron Peninsula Road off of Boston Mills Road in Peninsula, Ohio in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
