We started with a small flock of pure bred Jacob sheep in 2008. Each year we have brought in a tup of a different breed to vary and enrich the mix, which creates unique cross-breeds. This year's tup is a pedigree Bleu-de-Maine. These animals roam freely all year round in our beautiful fields and woods. We now have a small flock of Soay sheep, much smaller than the Jacobs, and so you get smaller, sweeter joints and chops. The mutton is delicious too! We also sometimes have hogget - this is an older lamb but not yet mutton, very tasty indeed. As with the beef, the sheep are taken to a local family farm and butcher for slaughter and packing. It is frozen on our premises which reduces food miles.
