What makes sheep milk truly unique and precious?
It is well known that only happy sheep produce milk – they are sensitive creatures! We have a flock of 5,000 predominately East Friesian dairy sheep living on our beautiful farms. The East Friesian breed by their very sweet-but-sometimes-stroppy natures they certainly aren't inclined to do anything they don’t want to. Milking sheep requires everything on the farm and in the milking parlour to be a certain kind of ‘just so’.
Our promise is to consistently deliver high quality, safe and delicious tasting milk products – so good, your family will never want to drink any other milk ever again.
