The Farm House is our heritage stay, having been a principle feature of the property and built for the Spencer homestead in 1895. While updated, the home maintains that old-time feeling and offers plenty of space for a comfortable getaway.

At Leaping Lamb, the grazing pastures sit amidst the picturesque Northwestern Coastal Rainforest and the lambs sit in wait, ready to greet you outside the barn. Turn down the private driveway, park, unload, and find yourself comfortably at ease in the original 1895 farm house or our newer 2005 cottage. If you’re seeking a retreat from city life, a bit of country comfort, scenic hiking trails, gentle creekside paths, or room to roam and let your mind wander, you’ll find everything you need right here on the farm. Take a seat by Honey Grove Creek and let the sound of the water flowing over the rock bed settle your thoughts and provide a moment of release. Take a walk out to the chicken coop to grab some eggs or head toward the historic 1930s barn where you’re welcome to give the goats a treat and meet the lambs. You’ll likely find yourself making some furry new friends.

Waking up in the morning, a do-it-yourself continental breakfast will be waiting in the Kitchen cabinets. You’ll find cereal, fruits, bread, tea, coffee, waffle and pancake mix, juices, and more, all ready to be put to use. Throw on an apron and let your inner cook shine through as the sun rises above the surrounding trees and glimmers through the windows. You can even make use of your newfound neighbors in the chicken coop or some of our homegrown produce, just ask us and we’ll be happy to accent your meals with a touch of Leaping Lamb flavor.

Beyond an appreciation for the land, you’ll hopefully learn a bit about our heritage here. Leaping Lamb Farm has had a long history in the Alsea area. The main house and several outbuildings were built by the Spencer family between 1896 and 1930 as part of the original homestead. While formerly known as Honey Grove Farm, the property has been a working farm since the fields were first cleared, growing hay, raspberries and blueberries, garlic, apples, pears, plums, grapes, and raising turkeys, cattle and sheep.

In addition to the flora, your neighbors on the farm include sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, a horse, donkey, peacock, and the requisite barn cats. Our business is focused primarily on selling our pasture-raised Katahdin/Dorper cross lamb directly to local customers. Depending on the time of year, most of these animals range freely around the property. That being said, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to introduce yourself!
