Hello! My name is Brandi McGrath!
Brandi was born and raised in Central California and has spent a majority of her life on the ranch. She fell in love with the Valais Blacknose sheep in 2018 when first laying eyes on them! Known for their stuffed toy appearance and gentle dispositions, their docile and cheerful personalities combined with those adorable faces, melted her heart at first sight. Brandi is also an award winning artist, working mostly in oils and was the Founder of Groveland Gallery in Yosemite Park.Upon retirement from her family-owned resort, restaurant, and art gallery, Brandi and her husband Joe purchased a small ranch in Oakdale, CA. They began a breeding program with the Valais Sheep and today, Brandi is the proud shepherdress of a flock over 100!
