Together with my wife Katie, we keep a small flock of Jacobs on our smallholding in the Camel Valley in North Cornwall. As well as looking after our sheep, much of our time is spent on a combination of pigs, chickens, bread making and vegetable growing.
Keeping sheep is a relatively new experience for us, having only lambed four times and shown for the first time at Royal Cornwall in 2023, so we are on a steep learning curve ourselves.
If you would like any help or advice please don’t hesitate to contact me. We are very happy to share our experiences and knowledge and can also introduce you to others in the area who have many more years behind them.
