Medieval Mystery Sheep from the Scots Border
Why this breed
The Cheviot is something of a mystery breed. Bred in the hills of Northumberland, some say they're Viking sheep, others say they're descended from survivors of Spanish Armada ship wrecks. They fend themselves typically, foraging on the wild grazing of moorland, often in unforgiving conditions. This makes for tremendous lamb, gamey or herbal in character, but with a decidedly sweet and succulent aspect to it too.
At Farmison & Co we are working together with farmers and actively promoting values that were in danger of being lost elsewhere through industrial processes.
