Meet the Flock
We share our smallholding with over 70 sheep, all shapes, sizes, colours and breeds! Our first 3 sheep came here in 2006 and the flock grew from then onwards!
There was a time when we discarded the fleeces from our sheep when the main purpose was on breeding pet lambs but after having my daughter in 2015 everything changed and now my aim is to help the sheep sustain themselves and live a happy life through their wool growing capabilities alone. For me, it is not about churning out thousands of products to make masses of money to buy needless things that I know I can live without… The life we have chosen is for the lifestyle and the sheep are a big passion of mine and a part of life here. Where they have a home for life, well-loved, munching away and growing wool which they hope will pay for their feed and vets bills with maybe even a bit to spare!
The main flock are our home bred primitive crossbreed sheep, they are tough little sheep with wild personalities, great colour genetics and beautiful fleeces. I added to this flock in 2018 with different breeds and crossbreeds we now have some wonderful big gentle longwool sheep and the stunning Icelandic’s which I have dreamed of owning for years…
Some of our new sheep were very kindly gifted to me, others came here when they were in need of a new home and a couple were saved from a one-way ticket. You can read more about them all and their stories below.
