Native Breed Sheep

Traditional and self-reliant

We keep Hebridean, Cotswold, Lleyn and Kent Romney sheep. These rare and native breeds thrive on grazing pasture, tracks and woodland across the farm.

They help maintain the condition of our pastures by grazing in rotation with the cattle. They also thin out the undergrowth in our woodland areas and graze along tracks which reduces mowing requirements and our fossil fuel usage.

Traditional native breeds like Hebrideans are known for the full flavour of their meat and are also naturally good at looking after themselves. They give birth easily and lambs are born with a thick coat to protect them from the elements. They need very little input and grow well on a 100% pasture diet, producing nutritious meat with exceptional flavour.
