Welcome to the Georgia Sheep and Wool Growers' Association!


Home of healthy sheep and successful shepherds  

We are a not-for-profit network of sheep breeders, sheep and wool producers and sheep enthusiasts. Our purpose is to promote healthy sheep and successful, well-informed shepherds.

Join us to:

  • Learn and share information about sheep and sheep products (meat, wool, dairy, grazing services, etc.)
  • Network with sheep producers and affiliated businesses (feed and farm suppliers, veterinary and farm services, fiber artists, farm dogs)
  • Explore resources and opportunities to increase sheep health, profitability and public awareness
  • Promote healthy sheep and successful shepherds in Georgia and beyond
