Gawmless Sheep


Jacob ewe Farm activities mostly revolve around our small flock of JACOB sheep. These beautiful black-and-white sheep can be multi-horned, but we keep only two-horned rams and prefer to keep two-horned ewes.

Nowadays, thanks largely to the efforts of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, but also in a large measure to their own obvious merit, the days are gone when Jacob sheep were classed as a "Rare Breed". We believe Jacobs are a sound commercial breed which do not need "novelty value" to hold their own as sound all-rounders on the farming scene.

You can learn more about Jacob sheep via our links page.

NEW! You can now buy Jacob knitting wool from our own flock ...


A good book about the Jacob sheep, their origins and history, is "A History of the Jacob Sheep", by Araminta Aldington. Go here to read about/purchase it.
