north ronaldsay sheep
One of UKs most endangered breed is the North Ronaldsay. In 2021 The Roundoak Ronaldsay flock continues to grow and flourish. ' Arran' is now the flock's ram - he is quite a character!
When Roundoak started breeding the Hebrideans they were also on the endangered list. According to the Rare breed society they are now off the endangered list.
The farm started with 16 Hebridean ewes and a ram, and we now have one of the largest flocks of Hebridean sheep in the UK. The farm supplies the lamb to many fine restaurants and eating establishments. We also have many visitors to the farm that purchase the meat. The Hebridean lamb has many qualities - it is lean and low in cholesterol similar to that of the North Ronalsays. Hopefully numbers will build up and the breed will not be lost forever
Roundoak is following it's programme to protect this rare breed, numbers continue to grow in the hope that it will not be lost forever.
