Sheep

The Shekleton flock

Sheep have always been on the cards for us. My love of them and of natural fibres really developed during my PhD. The desire to support rare breeds, have tasty meat, good fibre and not be too heavy on the land drew us to Castlemilk Moorits. They are currently listed as an at risk breed (around 1000 adult registered ewes and 100 adult registered rams) and are a bit more goat looking than sheep looking but we love them. We have found them to be beautiful and well mannered sheep, which are reasonable to handle and fairly low maintenance. You can read more about the breed on the RBST and the CMM Society pages.

We now have 3 bought in registered ewes, Arha, Arya and Aeryn, as well as 3 home-bred ewes Celaena, Caitlin and Caprica. The last memember of our flock is D'Jango, our charming ram. Lambing is in April this year and we may have ewes with lambs at foot for sale.

We've had some lovely hogget  and mutton (which we got great feedback from) and beautiful organic sheepskins. We also make pegloom thick mats/seat pads from a combination of our CMM fleece and white fleeces sourced from other smallholders. The skins and mats should soon be available on our Produce page.
