Our fifteen acres in Todd Township was part of a larger farm near McConnellsburg that was divided into parcels and sold in 1972. The open fields on the slopes of the ridge were ours to nurture and develop. After building our home, one of our three sons selected an FFA school project to raise sheep. It grew into a family project of raising lambs and developing a larger flock. Loy and Linda eventually named their homestead “Sheep Ridge Farm”. When their sons left home for college, Linda was inspired to create Sheep Ridge Farm Gift Shop in the basement of the house, which later expanded into a separate building on the property. After fifteen years the store closed and was converted into a fully equipped home, which is now the The Guest House at Sheep Ridge Farm.
