Ancient Native Breed Hebridean x Southdown Lamb

Ancient Native breed Hebridean x Southdown Lamb delivered fresh and locally, either whole or jointed to Chefs, Restaurants, Pubs, Butchers and Food Halls and in boxed, jointed freezer packs to the public. 

We keep our flock of Hebridean ewes to a manageable size so that we can provide the best possible care to each and every animal. Unlike commercial breeders, the welfare and quality of life of our animals is far more important to us than commercial viability. While this means that our stock is limited... it ensures a superb product for our customers. We genuinely believe that providing the utmost care and a relaxed and stress free life contributes enormously to the beautifully tender and delicious lamb we produce.

Ancient Native Breed Hebridean Lamb offers not only outstanding flavour and texture .....

This exceptional meat offers a succulent buttery taste but also boasts far lower cholesterol levels than most commercial lamb, so presents a delicious and healthy option! Lambs take between 8-12 months to reach maturity, whereas more commercial breeds can be ready in just six months. With the slower maturing process, the flavour is allowed to develop fully resulting in a beautifully rich and buttery flavour.

Happy, Stress free life...

Our lambs are reared on our smallholding in Essex.  The welfare of our animals is our main priority. We run a small flock so that we can provide the best possible care for each and every animal.

We have an incredibly close working relationship with our breeding ewes, all of whom have names and very individual characters including Beatie who is the boss, Tilly who will do anything for a sprout! and Alice who thinks she is a dog and wags her tail when you scratch her head!... By getting to know each and every one of them, we can spot any changes in behaviour and provide a high level of care and attention. We work hard to ensure a happy, stress free life for both them and their lambs. 

And yes, they are completely spoilt rotten! x

Molly is a fantastic Mum, she always has twin girls and several of her daughters are in her flock, she's so attentive and protective x

 Beautie (The Boss)

Beatie has always been the boss, from the minute she arrived with her 4 sisters when they were 6 mths old.

She's now nearly 14 and retired. While the ram is here she resides in our Retirement Village along with Tilly, also from the original flock, in a safely fenced off area alongside the normal grazing field with a new shelter, restaurant, and grazing / hay area. They receive a special seniors diet too. .


Auntie Jess

Jess is the daughter of Alice - one of my favourite, if a little greedy.. ewes. Fab Mum, real character and definitely passed that instinct and hunger to her little girl

Jess had 3 lambs before getting mastitis, which despite immediate treatment, sadly damaged one side of her udder so she could no longer suckle her lambs. She eagerly accepted the role of Auntie 3 years ago, which means she stays with the lambs when the lambs are weaned and all the Mums come home from summer grazing for their summer holiday.

Jess is the most fantastic Auntie! x

Last year, within 2 days, just 2 days!, she had the whole flock connected to her. When you call them now, the lambs all instinctively flock to Jess first and she brings them down, very proudly with a touch of strutting in her step, and into the pen for their meals. This also allows us to catch and treat any lamb quickly and without stress, whenever they need attention.

and me, Hi x

My name is Andi and I've wanted to be a shepherdess since I was 5.

We stayed on a Farm B&B in Cornwall when I was five and I would be up at dawn, wearing wellies and a nightdress and sneak out to the yard where the farmer would give me warm milk bottles and set me to feeding all the lambs. I was hooked.... and dreamed of it for many years. Kept dreaming about it throughout my 12 years in the rat race in a very high pressure job. Then an opportunity came our way so we lept! We both changed our jobs. We sold our house and bought a smallholding. Completed all the fencing and shelters and then bought our first 5 Hebridean ewe lambs, aged 6 months old. Beatie, Tilly, Milly Molly and Lilly. Their daughters run the current flock. I work from home as a web designer and my office window overlooks the main lambing shelter, so I can be designing a web page one second and delivering a lamb the next. I'm fully aware, every day, of how lucky I am but its taken a mountain of work and years of battling with planning departments to get here but I am very lucky. My girls are my passion, they are spoilt rotten and they are fantastic mums!
