Valais at Gratitude Acres

Welcome to the wonderful world of Valais Blacknose Sheep!

About Us

Having a background in nursing and breeding (champion) alpacas the nurturing and love of animals are part of who I am. Simply put; I am, with the help of my husband and many good friends in the VBN community, breeding the “cutest sheep in the world” for the pure joy of it. And we want to share the joy and fun with you! Valais Blacknose Sheep are social, friendly, fun and incredibly cute. They mow your lawns, enrich your soil, give you wonderful wool, “softscape” your surroundings and give you lots and lots of kisses and laughs!

This is Alma, one of our Cotswold foundation ewes in our breed up program. We are eagerly awaiting our first F1’s in May 2020!


Products and Services

Along with our F1’s we also offer wool. Just look at the luster and locks of our purebred registered Cotswold in this picture! Many use these locks for doll hair or Santa beards- and I understand why. This wool is a hand spinner’s dream to work with so I’m super excited to see what it will look like combined with the VBN!

If you would like to “talk sheep”, know more, come visit or get on our waiting list for F1’s please contact us!
