Running 650 acres of owned and rented grazing across neighbouring villages to the farm’s base at Wittersham, the commercial sheep enterprise consists of 100 ewes and 250 ewe tegs.
Breed choice is largely two thirds Romney ewes put to Romney and Poll Dorset tups and Suffolk tups to produce replacements. The remaining third consist of Poll Dorset x Romney ewes.
A further small flock of about 50 Texel x Poll Dorset females are put to a Beltex tup to produce homebred tups to go on to our commercial cross ewes, as well as producing prime lambs for winter fat stock shows.
Progeny from the commercial flock are sold through our own butchery with the remaining lambs sold through our local market as either store lambs or prime lambs depending on market trends or seasonal demand.
We have breeding females of all ages available to purchase across our different flocks.
