Paradise Hill Farm is located just east of Nanton and was established by Tony and Karen Legault in 2000. Our slogan is “Growers of great tasting Tomatoes, Basil and Lamb” as we run a commercial greenhouse in addition to the sheep farm. Our youngest son Cody is now running the sheep operation and continues the tradition of raising quality Hampshires. Cody also is very involved in our outdoor crops – like sunflowers! We started in sheep in Alberta in 1997 and all four children were involved in the Foothills 4-H Sheep Club.
In 2013, we seized an opportunity to purchase Warren and Norine Moore’s established Hampshire flock. We have a great deal of respect for the Moore’s in the sheep business and we are thrilled with the group of purebred Hampshires we acquired to add to our existing flock.
Our flock is raised in a manner to provide quality lamb carcasses with the best feed conversion possible. We select only the top ewe lambs to keep as breeding ewes. In the same manner we select only the top growth and structured ram lambs to raise to be yearlings, and again select only the top of this group to offer to you at this sale.
We believe that as a terminal sire, the Hampshire breed characteristics will produce quality lamb carcasses for your buyers, and they will do it through great feed conversion in less time, which saves you money.
