Hello. Welcome to Pretty Rock Lamb & Wool. We are a family-run farm located in southwest North Dakota, USA. This farm has been in the Goeres family since 1940. The Goeres family has a long tradition of working this land to produce useable goods and to raise their families.
We are, John and Julie Goeres, and are the third generation to take on the challenges of running a farm and ranch in Pretty Rock Township, ND. John went into the military after highschool. Julie is from a small town in NE Wyoming. We met while attending college and working in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We married and left for the East Coast as John had re-enlisted in the US Navy.
A military career of 21 years witnessed education goals being reached, children being born, many military tours across the world, moves across the United States, and the growing of a family.
We moved back to North Dakota in 2014 to raise our family and our farm...
We started with sheep about 6 months after we moved back, when a neighbor said..."Hey, you've got kids...you want some orphan lambs?" That was it and sheep came back to the farm after a fifteen-year absence.
Our Core Values are Honesty, Courage, Commitment and Kindness. We strive to build on the generations that came before us and improve on what they created, while raising our animals with the utmost care we can. Every year is a little different and we get a few more projects done on the list that rolls out like toilet paper.
Our little family is growing up and so is the farm. Thank you for visiting our farm. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions.
Until next time,
Be kind. Be calm. Be courageous.
