Elegant Sheep That Thrive on Heather
A most elegant sheep, the Teeswater is often said to have the most attractive of fleeces, with its long, fine locks. The breed is a common sight in the Dales and on the Moors of Yorkshire, though it hails from the heather-topped hills of Country Durham. Often cited as a mutton breed, expect lamb cuts leaner than other heritage breeds but no less in sweet succulence due to our Teesdales’ wild grazing on heather and grasses, which give its meat a unique, gamey character.
