The rolling Purbeck hills are ideal for sheep farming, with it's rich clay soil and moderate climate virtually guaranteeing 12 months grazing throughout the year. As a result, the lambs are outside all year, and almost entirely fattened off grass with a little supplementary feeding in the colder months to give us a carcass that is lean but with just the right amount of fat for better cooking and flavour.
Our ewes are North Country Mules and Poll Dorset Horn (cross) Mule, and the rams are Suffolk, Dorset and Hampshire Downs, Dorset Horn, Texel and Charolais. We lamb in January, March and May which means that, together with using the different breeds of ram, we can guarantee fresh lamb all year round.
