We have a small flock of 40 Lleyn crossbred ewes, which live outside on grass for the whole year. These ewes produce about 60 lambs each Spring. For the 2 to 3 weeks around lambing they have access to lambing sheds and organic sheep nuts. The lambs are reared on ewes' milk and grass.

Lleyn Sheep come from the Llŷn Peninsula in North-West Wales. They're well know for being good mothers and they have are good natured too. The Llŷn peninsula has very similar conditions to Cornwall so this is an ideal home from home for our flock. Click here to find out more about Lleyn Sheep
