Stocky & Fluffy Southern Sheep
Why this breed
A true heritage breed, the Hampshire Down is an amalgamation of several other heritage British breeds, bred together over many centuries. They are fluffy creatures, renowned for their wool, and usually run together in smaller flocks. Up North, they tend to be seen grazing together on the pastures of the valley bottoms, rather than up on the valley tops where the grazing is sparser. Expect a leaner finish to the meat, though replete with succulence and natural sweetness.
