Persephone Market Garden


Lamb, fleeces and rugs

Persephone is home to a flock of Romney and Romney Merino cross sheep. We now have about 27 ewes and 1 ram.The flock is on pasture from April/May to November/December. We carefully manage grazing to keep both the sheep and soil healthy. During the winter, the sheep are fed hay harvested from our fields.

Lamb is available for sale in autumn and winter. We typically sell it in half-lamb packages; you can make selections about your cuts.

While Merinos are regarded as having the finest and softest wool, Romney wool is ideal for hand-spinning. By combining Romneys and Merinos we are aiming for a dual-purpose flock that produces lamb for eating and beautiful wool for spinning, weaving and knitting.

Fleeces are available in late winter. We have white and coloured ewes. Some are Romneys and some are Romney Merino crosses. Shearing is done by a professional and fleeces are well-skirted. Please inquire for more details, if you are interested in getting a fleece.
