Aberfields

A recent introduction to the sheep enterprise the Aberfield flock was established after an approach from Innovis. The aim is to build a nucleus flock of Aberfield ewes from which tups will be sold for use as crossing sires on hill ewes.

A blend of maternal Texel genetics and prolific Bluefaced Leicesters the Aberfield is a breed which could have an increasing role to play at Fearn as both a sire on our own hill flock and as a purebred flock managed for the sale of tups locally and further afield.
