Have you ever dreamed of farming sheep? How about sheep in The Faroe Islands?

Krista is one of our pet lambs from last year, at birth she was only 1200 grams and her survival rate was low, but thankfully she managed to pull through. Krista is the daughter of Fitta, who is a farm favourite - but because Fitta didn't have any milk when she gave birth, Krista had to be a bottle fed. Krista is a loud one and she likes to "speak" a lot! She loves attention, but is a bit shy - especially when there are strangers. Krista is also very nice and friendly ones she's gotten to know you, she is always hungry and loves hay more than treats. 

This last year has again been a tough one for us, with unforeseen expanses, lots of rain and snow and hungry animals who need to be fed hay throughout the winter. Following a suggestion from our supportive Instagram community, we started this program.

By Sponsoring a Faroese Sheep for one year, you will help our beautiful sheep continue to thrive. Your contribution will help us continue to care for your Sponsored Faroese Sheep so that it can continue to live a long life here on the farm with us and it's friends, happily fed and humanely cared for with your help and support. Animal welfare is of the utmost importance to us here at Hanusarstova, and your Sponsorship will directly benefit your Faroese Sheep by providing it with hay & treats during conditions where it is unable to forage for itself.

BY SPONSORING A SHEEP YOU WILL GET:  A newsletter  or preferably instagram updates about your sheep with photos and  videos, and also an A4 poster of your sheep!

You are of course always welcome to visit your sheep here at the farm and we'll make you some coffee and cake, too! We do rounds with vaccinations, deworming and other medical checkups three times a year and you'll get notified as to when this will happen - you're welcome to join in, and even learn how to cut your own wool if you'd like!

Disclosure: We at Hanusarstova do our very best to provide our sheep with the best life possible, with appropriate amounts of feed & treats, and continued medical care. However, as with with all livestock animals, our sheep can fall ill where it's out of our hands to save them - especially the older sheep.

In the unfortunate event that your sheep passes, we will do our best to allow you to sponsor another sheep for the remainder of your yearly period, or we'll otherwise keep you updated on the entire flock!

Our sheep that are part of our Sponsorship program will not be used for meat and will live out their days with us at Hanusarstova, roaming the beautiful terrain here in the Faroe Islands.

Hanusarstova is a working sheep farm and our currently permitted maximum number of sheep is 68; we have some sheep meant for breeding and other sheep meant to sell for meat. Although I don't like this part of sheep farming, it is a way of life and means for helping us to support ourselves. We find comfort in that the food that we consume has had a good life, hopefully you understand this too.
