WHITEFACE DARTMOOR EWE
WHITEFACE DARTMOOR RAM
The breed is believed to be one of England’s most ancient breeds of sheep. The ewes are naturally polled (hornless) and the rams have magnificent curled horns. Their fleece is long, lustrous and curled, which produces a stunning lambskin. Hardy sheep, they are built to withstand hard moorland winters and still produce good lambs and superb wool. We have found them to be docile and a real pleasure to handle.
We have Whiteface Dartmoor livestock and lamb, hogget and mutton boxes available at various times of the year so please contact us for further information. We will give support to first time keepers and you might like to join one of our smallholder training courses, in particular our intensive two day Sheep for Beginners course.
