Shepherding...

The flock at Whin Yeats farm are a native breed, Kendal Rough Fells, and spend most of the year on Newbiggin Crags. We have around 100 lambing ewes and expect roughly 160 lambs each year. Lambing time is from mid March until early May and the sheep and lambs can be seen in the fields around the site in the spring. Clipping time is mid to late June and after that the sheep and lambs return to Newbiggin Crags. 

 

We are passionate about making the flock as sustainable as possible. With wool prices low we have a number of avenues to make our wool more profitable. These include as nesting material for birds and felted rugs. You can find out more about our flock and products we have available below and on our Instagram page.

Wool holders for nesting birds

Joe uses local, sustainable wood to make these lovely wool holders for birds to use at nesting time. Available to purchase on site or from us directly. A lovely way to take a piece of Shepherd’s Crag home for your garden and a great unique gift for bird-lovers! 

 

Felted ‘living’ rugs 

Beautiful fleeces that are felted on the back, meaning our sheep can produce one for us each year! We make a limited number of these each year - get in touch to reserve yours in 2022!
