PREVENANCE / TERROIRE :-
Breeds- Pedigree Hereford Beef, not cross-breeds.
Lamb - Easycare, which is a combination of the Wiltshire Horn & the Nelson Welsh Mountain breeds. This breed self sheds its own short fleece, but keeps a hair coat like a cow. This feature saves a lot of hassle and problems with keeping the flock and greatly reduces the use of chemicals.
Location- all livestock is born & bred on our Lancashire farm close to Preston.
Soil- Medium soil with a clay element, causing water logging in wet weather & winter. We have a deep topsoil over a clay subsoil.
Pastures- A mixture of unimproved grassland & improved grass + Clover + Chicory + Radish. The deep rooting plants have been included to break up the soil and improve drainage. We use the manure from the sheds as fertiliser plus a small amount of inorganics and lime to maintain good balance of nutrients as needed. Weed control is mainly by manual topping of thistle patches, but we do you a small amount of sprays from a hand lance. Our fields are quite small at between 3 to 6 acres mostly.
Hedges & Trees- the sheep especially browse the hedges. Every field is surrounded by tall hedges and mature trees, including many Oak trees. The hedges and trees are valuable as natural wind breaks & shelter, especially when the lambs are born.
