The Easycare breed of sheep being unloaded onto fresh pasture.
These naturally have a short fleece which prevents them getting stuck in brambles. They are winter hardy and stay outside all year round, do not require shearing and lamb outdoors so they are GRASS FED. The carcase weight is lighter than traditional woolly breeds at around 17 kg.
All fresh lamb was born April 2021 and of the Easycare breed. They go in on a Monday and hang till either the following Thursday or the Thursday after that.
All parts are available to order, prices below are for the products usually in stock.
