Isaac Matchett of Matchett Sheep Farm in Charlevoix raises sheep for meat and wool. Right now with the uncertainly of the COVID-19 shutdown, he continues to work toward his normal goal of ensuring the farm is never stagnant. He’s active in his church, Michigan Sheep Producers, and Michigan Farm Bureau. In his free time he enjoys playing pickup soccer with friends and tourists that visit Charlevoix, and spending time with his wife Brianna and their two young sons, who are fascinated with every farm machine.
Isaac talks about:
- How many lambs a ewe has, to the exact decimal point
- The farming sparkle he sees in his boys
- The seasonal nature of sheep farming
- His most-asked questions about wool
- Why he likes to be working in his free time
