Alderton Farm | About our Flock
Our flock numbers around 50 ewes and all replacement females have been home-bred since 2004. Our sheep have a high health status, being accredited free from Maedi Visna. The flock is also registered with the Scrapie Monitoring Scheme, which certifies that our sheep are free from Scrapie and eligible for export. We have exported Shropshires to France, Germany, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. We usually have breeding stock for sale. For more information please visit our Livestock Sales.
Alderton Farm | Our Wool
In 2007 we began processing part of the wool clip from our flock into knitting yarn. We work with small, specialised woolen mills to produce a range of yarns, including pure white Shropshire lambs’ wool, Double Knitting and Aran weight yarns. These include several blends of grey yarn, using rare black Shropshire fleece, as well as other naturally coloured Shetland and Ryeland wool. Please contact us for more details or visit the Flock of Ages.
