Welcome to Copia Cove!

a little story about us

Shepherd like a girl!

Copia Cove LLC, a sheep ranching operation in Southwest Montana, is owned and operated by super-mommy, Amika Ryan and her right-hand gal, Madison. Their 2018 breeding flock consists of fifty pure-bred Icelandic ewes and three magnificent rams.

Amika’s dream is to offer the best Icelandic sheep breeding stock and value-added products (crafty goodies handmade from sheep milk, fiber, and sheepskins) in North America. She is dedicated to promoting the Icelandic sheep breed, sustainable ranching, and humane treatment of all animals (and humans). Be sure to check out the Blog and the Shop to see for yourself why Amika and Madison think that Icelandic sheep are the ultimate homestead animal!

We hope you stay connected with us throughout our shepherding journey. And, as always, we encourage you to shepherd like a girl!

Our Sheep

The oldest pure breed

Icelandic Sheep are the oldest, purest breed of sheep, going back over 1,000 years! They are naturally short-tailed, and come in two colors, moorit (brown) and black, and a variety of patterns.

Available NOW:  2018 Registered and Unregistered breeding stock. Ready for pick-up in August/September 2018. View available ewes and rams HERE.

My sheep are as unique in personality as they are in appearance.
