Karras Farm specializes in breeding East Friesian Dairy Sheep. We have been in the dairy sheep business since the late 1800's starting in Greece. Four generations later we are still commited to breeding the highest quality and genetically pure East Friesian Sheep in the world. In 1994 we moved our operation to North Carolina with the same focus of excellence to our animals and customers.
My name is Andy Karras Owner/Operator and I thank you for taking the time to read our blog.
We run a mid sized dairy sheep farm and specialize in pure bloodline East Friesian Sheep. I am a third generation sheep farmer and the first from my heritage to bring these beautiful animal to the United States. My father, grand father and great grandfather have been in the dairy sheep business since the late 1800's in Greece. I was raised with these docile animals and have a true passion for them. While I have plenty of real life experience to draw from in caring for these animals I also committed myself to being fully trained in the field. I completed five years of Veterinary training in Greece and spent two years in a USDA approved slaughter facility. My dreams of operating a nationally renowned sheep farm in the United States have led me to providing a blog where I can share ideas and stories with other like minded people. Please feel free to comment, email or call me if I can assist you in any way.
