Daniel Garber was an American Impressionist landscape painter and member of the art colony at New Hope, Pennsylvania. He is best known today for his large impressionist scenes of the New Hope area, in which he often depicted the Delaware River. He also painted figurative interior works and excelled at etching.
Here at Cuttalossa Farm, we are proud to be a part of the original group of shepherds that formed the Olde English Miniature Babydoll Southdown Sheep Breeders Association and Registry. Our organization was established in 1990 by our president and founder, Robert Mock.
The sheep are a main attraction, with their smiling faces (characteristic of the miniature baby doll breed) and bells on their collars that ring out beautiful melodies. I was told that Garber had gotten them from Switzerland, and that each bell played a different note in an octave. The sheep roam in a clearing that is surrounded by towering sycamores and hemlocks, beside a mill. A small sheep shed sits at the far end. There is a stillness about the place, punctuated with the occasional bleating of the sheep and chiming of the bells, that speaks of sanctuary.
“Cuttalossa” comes from the name of an Indian village which existed in the area, meaning “the place of the middle fountain or spring”.
