Robert Clarke, Sandymount, Co Wicklow Flock 2103

Sandymount Farm is situated in North Tipperary on 500 acres. The mixed farm enterprise is now run by Robert Clarke, having taken over from his parents Ann and George a number of years ago. While Ann and George still keep a close eye on the operations, the day-to-day running of the farm is solely Robert’s responsibility. As a result the farm has undergone a number of changes in the last eight years. Read more [Here]


 

Miley_1.jpgLleyn in the Wicklow Mountains

On a cold bright day in early January I visited a hill farm the property of Edward and Seamus Miley to see for myself their pure bred Lleyn grazing at an elevation of 1,300 feet. The Miley's bought their first Lleyn ewes at the first Society sale held in the Tullow Mart. They join the ewes with the ram at the end of October for late March/April lambing. They bring the ewes back from the mountain for this. [More]

I was very impressed with the Lleyn cross and kept most of the ewe lambs as replacements. [More]
