|Soay Sheep are small,
that are low maintenance, easy lambers and very hardy.
Wool is collected by brushing or "rooing" the sheep.
These sheep are ideal for Homesteads and small properties.
They will also improve pasture while grazing.
They love invasive weeds
like Knapweed, Thistle and Tansy.
Soay Sheep are curious, shy,
cold-hardy and kid-friendly.
Soay Sheep come from the remote island of Soay,
about sixty miles off the northwest coast of Scotland,
where they have survived as a stranded, isolated population
for thousands of years, completely unmanaged by man.
These ruminants are thought to have descended
from the flocks of primitive Bronze Age shepherds.
They are more primitive than any other
Northern European Short-tailed sheep breed.
|Soay Sheep are smaller than
domesticated sheep breeds,
but also hardier and much more agile.
Their primitive look is stunning!
|Soay Sheep will mow your
and fertilize your garden.
They will also help control invasive weeds
and will give you fertilizer and wool.
You can also harvest the meat, which is a delicacy,
and tan beautiful pelts.
|We breed and sell Soay
and usually have Ewes and unrelated Rams available.
All of our Sheep free-range on Organic Bio-active pasture,
supplemented with Organic grains in harsh weather.
