The Business Side of Things!

The Kemp Sanctuary finds it's home at Nettle Meadow Farm which is owned and operated by Sheila Flanagan and Lorraine Lambiase. Nettle Meadow is currently the home of more than 300 goats and over 100 sheep who contribute to making Nettle Meadow's award-winning cheese.   Nettle Meadow's many animals are housed in six larger barns and eight smaller outbuildings. For more information regarding the history of the farm, or our delicious cheeses feel free to visit the website!

The Kemp  Sanctuary is named in memory of Joseph F. Kemp, brother-in-law to Lorraine and husband of Annette Kemp, one of the sanctuary's board members.  Joe lost his life to cancer at the young age of 53.  However, his life demonstrated core values of the sanctuary - "Love and respect for all living things."
