Captain John S. Pope Farm is located in the rolling hills of Orange County NC, about 20 miles north of Chapel Hill. Operated by third, fourth, and fifth generation descendents, the farm raises grass fed free-range Dorper lambs. The result is tasty, low fat meat with higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acid, CLA and Beta-carotene.
Our Dorpers graze year-round through careful selection of grasses with legumes that produce nitrogen and reduce the need for commercial fertilizer. Ponds and wetlands are fenced out to protect soil and water quality. Fresh deep well water is provided from frost-free water troughs. Our flock is guarded from predators by llamas and Akbash-Marrema dogs. We use no chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibiotics, and our meat is USDA-inspected, Halal and NCDA-licensed for handling and transport.
You are invited to visit the farm and purchase delicious healthy meat, feed the llamas, and enjoy the pleasant country atmosphere. If you are unable to visit us, we will ship to you in fast-frozen vacuum packs. We offer your favorite cuts individually packaged, whole or halves.
