Welcome to Maple Hill Farm

MapleHillFarms_AboutUs_Leonard

Maple Hill farm was established by Leonard and  Janey Servinski in the early 1980’s.  For many  years they raised and showed Hackney Ponies.  The conversion of pony barns began when their grandchildren introduced them to the sheep  they raised for their 4H projects  in Midland County.  The Servinskis dispersed their ponies in 2010, and continued with three small flocks of foundation sheep, including Len’s Suffolks from Renn-Vue Farm in Michigan, Teeswaters from Ewes In Color in Oklahoma, and Leicester Longwools from flocks in Virginia and West Virginia.  They worked closely with additions of Leicester Longwools from their neighbor, Laurie Ball-Gisch at Lavender Fleece, and the relationship continues to this day.

In early 2014, Servinskis made arrangements with Brenton Heazlewood, in Tasmania, Australia,  to collect one of his Leicester Longwool Rams, “Melton”, a standout sire at Melton Park Leicester Longwool stud.  The frozen semen arrived in late spring.   Glen Erickson of New Frontier Genetics in Wellsville, Utah, came to Maple Hill  for a special breeding day to do the LAI,  and both Maple Hill ewes and Lavender Fleece ewes will lamb in late February, 2015.  This initial importation has expanded into a three-year agreement with Mr Heazlewood at Melton Park English Leicester stud to import another sire’s semen in 2015, “TASMAN”, who is a combination of Tasmanian and New Zeeland genetics and a third sire in 2016.  They are very excited about this project and the opportunity it brings for others to use the semen to introduce new genetics in their flocks.  To that end, another open breeding clinic has been scheduled for two days in September 2015 at Maple Hill Farm.

Janey has retired from Education.  Len and their son Charles own and continue to operate Maple Hill Nursery and Equipment, a retail nursery/garden center in Midland, Michigan, founded in 1978. www.maplehill-midland.com  The nursery is located adjacent to the farm just north of the local business district.

The Servinskis grandchildren live closeby and come each day to work with their animals or hang out in their fort, built on the top of their Uncle Andy’s old hideaway. The teenagers own sheep, and belong to the 4-H Club, OUR LEGACY.
