Welcome

Grandview Polypay is located west of Marshall in southwestern Minnesota. It all started when we purchased our farm – weeds and all. Taking someone’s advice “sheep will eat anything” we purchased 50-bred ewes. They cleaned up the place and we were hooked. Raising sheep offers a high quality of life that reflects our personal values and family farm goals. For over 25 years we have been in the sheep industry.

Small Flock - Big Results

Grandview Polypay

We offer top quality breeding stock and market lambs. As a member of the Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program we've been involved in the leading edge of production management in the sheep industry.  The maternal traits of our flock, based on barn records, demonstrates that our ewes will breed in the first heat, carry condition, and lamb out of season.  If you are interested in improving production in your flock, we can help.

You might have seen it in a sheep calendar, on-line, at a convention, or in the pages of Sheep Industry News. The photo is question was captured during the "golden hour" of a September sunset in 2008.
