Lleyn Sheep

Lleyn sheep originate from the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales.  Until recently they were a relatively unfamiliar breed of sheep in the UK.  The last 10 years have seen the Lleyn become the fastest growing breed in the UK, and now Lleyn can be found on farms all over the country. Lleyn numbers are now growing rapidly in Southern Ireland too.

Farmers soon find that the Lleyn ewe is an ideal sheep; quiet in nature, prolific with great maternal instincts, milky, and will not eat you out of house and home.

The Lleyn thrives on both lowland and upland grazing.  Its versatility makes it suitable for many farming systems.
