You Tube 'How to...' Sheep Videos     Website     Facebook     Feature: Cornwall and Devon Longwools: my journey
When I started with my Devon & Cornwall Longwools, I found it hard to learn about the general basics of sheep keeping. There was not the information on line so I learnt at the 'Universaty of Hard Knocks'. My flock has now grown to 25 breeding ewes and we are proud to have won lots of prizes at local and county shows. I adore looking after my sheep and am passionate that others get to fulfill their dreams of keeping sheep. I decided that in the autumn and winter when our holiday cottages are not so manic, to offer workshops in basic sheep keeping, as well as residential weekends during our lambing season.

Over the years, I have seen people start with their first flocks and they too are now successful sheep keepers. This makes me proud to have been, and still, part of that journey. My journey continues, I now sell starter flocks, fleece, and meat. Last lambing season I started a VLOG on yYou Tube, 'Starting with sheep' (see link above).

I am proud of what I have achieved but more proud of what I have helped others achieve. Sheep keeping can be a real pleasure with the right information and someone to guide you and not knock you. Questions are never silly and people should never be afraid to ask someone what they want to know. We need to keep our 'family silver' of the sheep industry alive. The 'family silver' is our native rare breeds. These breeds hold genetics that are crucial to the commercial industry and us smallholders/smallscale farmers have a huge part to play in keeping these breeds alive.
