Both Davy and Judith are from farming backgrounds in their native Scotland, with Davy having been a killer in an abaitoir for fifteen years where he honed his eye in live weight & shape confirmation to select cattle & sheep to suit customer demands. Judith is a veterinarian and has worked in both large and small animal practices. We moved here to Northern Ireland in 1999 with Judith taking a position as a ministry vet, she's since been seconded to greenmount college where she teaches vet nurses. Both care for the sheep with Davy being the brawn.
We rent our grazing and keep a selection of cross and mule ewes for a commercial return. We have recently added to the flock with a batch of pure bred texel ewe lambs with the intention of tupping them with our CHARMOISE ram. We also recently purchased from Scotland a nucleus flock of pedigree CHARMOISE, in lamb ewes and a shearling Ram. There have been Charmoise rams sent to Ireland before, but we believe we are the first to stock both ewes & rams with the intention of breeding pedigree Charmoise sheep. Below is a picture gallery of Glenshesk, our Charmoise and some of the Texel ewe lambs for size comparison
