About Us

Lower Sherwood Farm

Lower Sherwood has been owned and operated by the McGrath family since 1986.  We chose llamas because wanted to raise an animal that wasn't intended for slaughter. Specializing in show and breeding stock, we have produced some of the nations top llamas. 

As one of the first llama farms in the country to shear our llamas (a necessity due to the hot Virginia summers), we also produce yarns and finished products available for sale off the farm at the Scottsville Farmers' Market. Appointments are required for farm visits.

More recently, our focus has turned to agritourism and will be offering day hikes - nature walks with llamas, farm tours, and birthday parties.

We have also been the producers of the long running publication "Llama Life II".  No longer in print version, the magazine is now available online at www.llamalife.com
