The Symbol of the Lakeland Fells
Why this breed
The Herdwick is the symbol of the Lakeland Fells and an internationally recognised chef's favourite known for its well developed taste. This is thanks to the Herdwick's hardy demeanor, living on steep windswept hillsides, gaining weight slowly on naturally foraged food. Their origin is mysterious, seemingly introduced by Norse settlers, though others point to a wrecked ship of the Spanish Armada as the breed's foundation. Such stories complement the romanticism the breed inspires, winning the affection and support of both Beatrix Potter and HRH Prince Charles.
