Why this breed

The name Lonk derives from the Lancashire word Lanky, meaning long and thin, usually in a person. The mysteriously-named Lonk sheep are thought to have been farmed by the monks at Whalley and Sawley, they are a native to Lancashire. Thriving in Lancashire's high places with a minimum of fuss, grazing in the sort of spots where most other breeds wouldnt be seen. Championed by Chef Nigel Haworth for many years and central to his signature Lancashire Hot Pot.
