Run by John Gorman & Sandra Stark, The Paddocks is a sheep ranch in coastal Mendocino County. The lamb is grown on grass just 2,000 feet from the pristine Mendocino coast surrounded by Manchester state park and Arena Rock natural preserve. The extreme coastal environment produces warm sandy soils which give rise to quality pasture of herbal plantain, chicory, and briny clover. The Blue-Faced Leceister & Romney sheep are grazed rotationally and produce both wool and meat.
