A West Country Rare Breed
Why this breed
A relation of the now extinct Pink-nosed Somerset, the Dorset Horn is rather unique among British breeds, being able to lamb through the winter. This helped secure its popular status in the New World, however today the Dorset Horn is a rare breed at risk in the UK. The characteristic heavy spiral horns of the ram make the breed instantly recognisable, while the more common Dorset Poll is the hornless variety of the breed. The consistency of the lamb meat is well known and highly rated, making it very popular with farmers and butchers alike.
At Farmison & Co we are working together with farmers and actively promoting values that were in danger of being lost elsewhere through industrial processes.
