Our Sheep

Cameroon Flock

Cameroon sheep are a rare but hardy breed which comes from Africa, as their name suggests.

They have a hairy rather than woolly coat and shed their insulating layer in the summer, so don't need to be sheared. 

We have scaled down the size of the flock now and just have a few friendly Cameroon and Cameroon- cross sheep enjoying their life with the alpacas! 

Meet Matteo: 

Valais Blacknose Ram

Last year we welcomed Matteo to Oak Tree Farm. The Valais Blacknose breed comes from Switzerland and are known for their amazing curly fleece and characteristic black patches on their legs.

These sheep have become popular in recent years and are bred to high standards. They are very hardy and well-suited to harsh winters. 

He is a friendly and calm addition to the farm.

Kerry Hill Sheep

This is Barney, our Kerry Hill ram.

The breed is characterised by white faces with black markings around the eyes, mouth and ears. They also have black markings on their legs.

Another hardy breed, their lambs tend to grow quickly and stand up to the elements. 

Suffolk Sheep

The Suffolk breed has been around since the 18th Century and is one of the most numerous breeds in the world. 

With black faces, black legs and white fleece, these are the archetypal English sheep!
