Under the label “Shepherd’s Lamb,” the Manzanares are the only producers of certified-organic lamb in New Mexico, and among the only ranchers in the United States who still graze sheep on wild land, moving from low country to mountains and back to pasture according to the season.

Using a combination of education, love for animals and the land, and sheer bullheadedness, the Manzanares have spent the last 30 years trying to figure out what a modern, sustainable family ranch might look like.
