Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm (/Daegwallyeong Yangtte Farm) was Korea’s first sheep farm, located at 850m above sea level in the Alps of Pyeongchang. With the many ranches in Pyeongchang, Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm is the only ranch that raises sheep. 

Over 300 sheep graze on the vast  field of Daegwallyeong in nature from Spring in March to late Fall in October. The sheep go indoor during winter time.

The sheep grazing field is surrounded by a 1.2km walking trail that takes about 40mins to complete. Visitors can enjoy feeding hay to the sheep, reaching out to touch their fur and taking photos of the beautiful scenery. At the hill of the sheep farm, one can view the coastal city of Gangneung and the East Sea beyond.

A wooden shack in the middle of the field is the main focus spot for many visitors. It was a filming set for the movie, "A Man Who Went to Mars (2003)".
