Welcome to Wellscroft Farm

Welcome to Wellscroft Farm

Since 1974, Wellscroft Farm has thrived as one of New England's largest working sheep farms. Over the past forty years owner David Kennard, along with his shepherds, has brought Wellscroft Farm to where it is today. Over 13,000 lambs have been born on the farm, which now consists of a flock of roughly 150 commercial Dorset-Cross ewes. In 1999, Wellscroft Farm was honered to be awarded recognition as a New Hampshire Farm of Distinction.

In addition to the flock, David raises and trains Border Collies which he uses on the Farm every day. He is also widely known and praised throughout New England for his entertaining and informative herding demonstrations.
