About Easy Care Sheep

Easy Care sheep have been developed as a low maintenance sheep, producing lambs which are lively at birth and produce a good carcase on a low input system. Shedding wool, doing away with the expense and hassle of shearing is one of their main attractions. Developed from the Wiltshire Horn "hair sheep", crossing with other breeds has resulted in no horns, hardiness, easy lambing, good mothering ability and low veterinary requirements. The breed is Easy Care.

Lamb

We produced our first lamb boxes from our Easy Care Sheep some years ago and plan to sell some this year.

lambs at cuckoo farm

In 2018 lambing was during March and May. We have organic whole or half lamb/hogget/ boxes available to order from July. The abattoir we use is small, local and as stress-free as possible for our animals.

We have introduced a Suftex ram this autumn (Suffolk x Texel) for some of the ewes and we will be interested to see the lambs he throws.

Our lambs suckle the ewes and graze our organic pastures until they are at least 3 months old. After weaning they graze fresh pasture until they are ready for slaughter.

lamb carcases ready to cut up

You can order a half or whole lamb box cut up as you request, or if you are a budding DIY butcher, order to cut up yourself.

Lamb/hogget/mutton boxes/lamb packs

We have organic lamb and hogget for sale now (November). Hogget is last year's lamb, it has a stronger flavour than lamb, but is still tender.

Our mutton will be available in the autumn. For more about hogget and mutton see hogget-mutton page.

Call and ask about our lamb packs if you can't manage a whole or half lamb.
