Farming background

I come from a small farming background in Northamptonshire. We have always had pedigree cattle and sheep, including mine and my brothers flock of Blue Texel sheep. We have shown across the country and have bought and sold at the national breed sales. We decided to disperse the flock back in 2017, when we both started work and college and they helped us to fund buying a car each. Myself and my younger sister have recently started a small flock of pedigree Suffolks. 2023 was our first year on the show circuit I was lucky enough to take male champion reserve overall champion with a homebred ram lamb. I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish in the future.
