Old Chatham Sheepherding Company
Producer Profile: Old Chatham Sheepherding Company
Location: Old Chatham, NY
Owners: Dave and Sally Galton
Set in 600 acres of beautiful countryside in Chatham is the largest sheep dairy farm in the US. Started by Tom and Nancy Clark, Old Chatham Sheepherding Company changed hands in 2014 to Dave and Sally Galton. Since then, they have carried on the tradition of producing award-winning cheese and yogurts.
Changes are brewing, however, as the Galtons have built a top of the line facility out in the Finger Lakes Region and will be transferring operations there. The flock of 2,100 dairy sheep have already made the move and are comfortably being milked twice a day, while being fed a diet of locally sourced hay and grains.
