| Welsh Mountain Badger Face Torddu ||Welsh Mountain Badger Face Torwen||Whiteface Dartmoor |
We keep four flocks of native pedigree sheep, the two Kington flocks of Welsh Mountain Badger Face (both colour variations, the better known classic Badger Face Torddu and the less common Torwen), the South Yeo flock of Whiteface Dartmoors and Herdwicks. For more information about each breed click on the tabs on the left.
Livestock: We do have stock for sale, so please contact us with any queries. If you have a plot of land that needs management but
you don't want the stress of lambing, a small group of interesting,
unusual and prettily marked sheep is an attractive grazing option, and
cheaper and greener than a ride-on mower. We are happy to give advice
to any first-time purchasers, or you might like to join one of our smallholder training courses. If you are interested in buying a ram lamb to serve your ewes in the autumn, please let us know before lambing starts (i.e. by the beginning of March) so that we can keep some of the best entire for you to choose from.
Lambs suitable for breeding or as natural lawn mowers are ready to go to their new homes once they have been weaned, by the end of July. As we have increased the flock sizes we sometimes have shearling ewes available, ready to go to the ram in the autumn of their second year. We will sell a minimum of two lambs at a time unless you already have sheep at home, as they require company. We frequently get asked if we hire out our rams, but as we keep closed flocks to minimise health risks, we don't do this, However, our pedigree stock rams are available for sale after two years service with our flocks and they will have plenty of good breeding years ahead of them.
Livestock prices: This does depend on market prices, so please contact us for further information. Our sheep and lambs will be sold with the appropriate pedigree ear tags.
Lamb, hogget and mutton meat boxes: we courier our fabulous lamb direct to your door and details are on our meat box page.
Fleece and lambskins: we make the most out of every element of our sheep and make sure that all our meat lambs also provide a gorgeous lambskin. Our fleece and lambskins are sold direct to customers who love natural products.
