Shropshires have the unique ability to graze safely in conifer plantations and fruit orchards as, unlike other breeds, they do not strip bark and foliage from trees. In fact, this was the original reason we chose Shropshires as we had recently planted a small fruit orchard.
Tender, succulent and full of flavour…
As stated by the Shropshire Sheep Breeders Society breeds don’t come back from being rare for no reason. With the commercial farmer supplying the supermarket trade with fast-growing lean continental breeds, the Shropshire’s comeback is all about traditional values. Shropshires provide an eating quality which is second to none. It is not only different, but better than the product found on the supermarket shelf.

Caring for our flock
Whilst we strongly believe in outdoor grazing, we also strongly believe in protecting our livestock from both adverse weather and natural predators. We are their carers and it is our responsibility. As such we prove indoor lambing facilities and also protection against the elements throughout the farming year when our sheep have access to indoor housing, fresh, dry bedding and hay as forage (which we cultivate throughout the year). We, on the other hand, rough it during the lambing period!
We love to welcome visitors to the farm, to make an appointment please get in touch.
