Lauren is a Kentucky born and raised animal enthusiast. She fulfilled her dream of becoming a shepherdess nearly 4 years ago and is the head shepherd at Blewegrass Apiary. Her small flock of 10 Katahdin Sheep has grown to more than 50 as the Blewegrass Apiary continues to expand its efforts to share this high quality grass fed lamb with the local community.
A natural nurturer, Lauren has worked as a nurse in the area for over a decade and her medical knowledge has made shepherding seamless (along with a few sheep educational classes). Her greatest joy is to see her children out in the Kentucky Bluegrass peacefully watching the sheep graze the hills or around the barn during lambing season, witnessing the miracle of life.
