Welcome to Shropshire Sheep

Welcome to our website. Shropshire Sheep are the oldest pedigree registered breed in the UK, but far from being old fashioned and outdated, their strengths make them absolutely ideal for the modern kind of sustainable farming. They are a tri-purpose breed. They thrive on pasture and produce meat of excellent quality, being both good terminal sires and excellent mothers. They have wool that is good enough for hand knitting. And they are the “tree-friendly” breed, being able to graze tree plantations and orchards without damaging the trees.
