All Southbrook lamb is born and raised humanely on property with minimal intervention. They spend their entire lives outdoors, feeding from Southbrook’s certified Organic and Biodynamic pastures as they fertilize the vineyard and help to promote biodiversity. All Southbrook lambs are raised GMO-free and chemical-free.

Linc Farm History
Many Southbrook fans and guests may not realize that at the very back of the 150-acre property lies a whole farm. Linc Farm @Southbrook is home to a growing flock of sheep (85 in 2017) and lambs, their Livestock Guardian Dogs (Quiz and Lady), a drove of free ranging Berkshire/Duroc pigs, a growing flock of laying hens, two black cats (Gloria and Ebony), and two retired thoroughbred freeloaders, I mean horses.
Linc Farm @Southbrook is run by Juliet Orazietti and Martin Weber who are responsible for all the farm animals that are integral to Southbrook’s biodynamic operations. One of Juliet and Martin’s responsibilities is to shepherd the Southbrook sheep throughout the vineyard during the warmer months to convert solar-powered pasture into nutrition for the vines.
Juliet is no stranger to the Southbrook family as she and her mother Ann Sperling, Southbrook’s Winemaker, have been helping raise and breed the Southbrook sheep since 2009. In fact, Juliet chose the ewes that we were first brought to Southbrook and has delivered the Southbrook lambs every year except for 2014 and 2015. During her absence, Juliet was in Vienna working on her Masters in Animal Breeding and Genetics. It is there that she met her husband Martin who also is a Master of Livestock Science.
Juliet and Martin returned to Southbrook Vineyards and Niagara-on-the-Lake in 2015 and were happy to take over the existing farm and create Linc Farm @Southbrook.
Southbrook Vineyards retail store is currently selling single “varietal” yarns made from the wool of our very own Southbrook sheep! The yarn is spun locally at Wellington Fibres. Please call the winery for pricing and availability.
