Sheep happily grazing

The lamb sold in our Farm Shop originates from our sheep enterprise of approximately 200 breeding ewes.

Mainly Suffolk cross North Country Mule Breed parentage we then cross back with superior pedigree Suffolk Rams to sire high quality healthy lambs.

All the sheep graze at grass within neighbouring parishes to Great Barford throughout the year. They return to the farmstead holding during February, March and April each year for lambing.  We lamb indoors where observation and care is on hand 24 hours a day should it be required.

Whilst indoors the ewes are fed on a home grown cereal diet, supplemented with hay and silage.  They are bedded daily whilst waiting the impending birth of their lambs.  After lambing, the happy families are returned to fresh lush pastures within the parish of Great Barford for nature to take it’s course naturally!

As with any livestock produced and sold by the Southall Family, our sheep are all reared by traditional means and are FREE from Growth Promoters and harmful medications.
