Our growing flock is registered with the Hebridean sheep society. In 2013 we started our own herd by purchasing 10 ewes from a friend … the flock grew from 10 to 17, then to 31 and now over 80 and our flock just keeps growing every spring.
All of our sheep are born, reared and grazed on traditional pasture. All are very well looked after and only given supplements if ill or absolutely necessary.
Amongst our flock we have a range of 2 and 4 horns ewes and rams and a couple of very rare silver fleeced ewes.
All of our stock is registered with the Hebridean society including lambs so they are ideal for those wanting to purchase stock to breed or just for grazing and the freezer. All of our sheep are fully tagged and have a full set of registration papers.
We bucket train our sheep so they are easy to handle and will provide support to any buyers, especially first timers or novices to the breed. We have now just weaned the lambs and have a few left this year to sell as breeding stock, if you are interested please get in touch. We charge £80 per animal and include local delivery and full advise and support, and we will visit your place to help advise on what equipment and set up you might need. For local buyers we are now starting up a fleece cooperative so if you only have e.g. 4 sheep and want to make wool from the fleece from 2020 you will be able to include your fleece in my cooperative so you can have your own wool!
We sell Hebridean Hogg’s (18 month old, which is the ideal age) and Mutton.
Hebridean’s have a distinct taste and is less fatty than normal lamb. The meat is darker in colour than commercial produced lamb, and all of our animals are reared outdoors in a natural environment and fed only top quality hay and feeds. Our flock even drink pure bore hole water!
The sheep travel 30 minutes to our local abattoir. We stay with the sheep right until the end to ensure they are not stressed and that they are treated with the upmost respect.
Our hoggs / mutton are reared in the traditional way so your purchase helps us to continue breeding and supporting the Hebridean stock and blood lines which is essential to ensure the long term survival of this beautiful rare breed sheep.
We sell ½ and whole carcass and can arrange for our butcher to cut the carcass however you want. Please place your orders well in advance to avoid disappointment. We currently charge £60 per ½ carcass and £120 for a whole carcass.
Our meat runs take place once a year around the beginning of September so please place your order by the end of June.
We also supply the Moorcock Inn restaurant www.themoorcock.co.uk at Norland Moor. The food there is amazing!
