Stacy & Kevin Dresow | Dresow Family Farm


Dresow Family Farm is a start-from-scratch story. Stacy and Kevin raise white and colored Cormo and Cormo cross-bred fine-fleeced sheep for their squishy, soft wool. They rotationally graze their sheep in woods and pastures and have been certified through Minnesota’s Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program since 2018. From lambing and feeding to shearing and marketing, Stacy has been figuring out how to do it all while keeping “local” in mind in all their farm operations. If you’re thinking about starting to farm, are new to sheep or want to explore new opportunities for marketing, come learn what Stacy says are the key things you need to know about sheep.


A meal will follow the field day.
