Harphill Flock of Kerry Hills
24 Sep 2018

We are very lucky to have livestock grazing on our land. In the 3 fields surrounding Tanglewood Farm you will find a mixture of different breeds of sheep. Included in these are the award winning Harphill Flock of Kerry Hills.


Here is some information on the Kerry Hill breed:


The Kerry Hill (WelshDafad Bryniau Ceri) is a breed of domestic sheep originating in the county of Powys in Wales. It derives its name from the village of Kerry (Ceri), near Newtown.Kerry Hill sheep have a distinctive and unique coloration, with a white face bearing black markings around the mouth, ears, and eyes.Both rams and ewes are polled. Their wool is white, and their legs are white with black markings. First mentions of the breed date back to the early 19th century, and today it is distributed throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. Though still not very numerous, the breed was removed from the records of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust watchlist in 2006.This breed is primarily raised for meat.


The Kerry Hill Flock Book Society keeps a register of pure bred animals and provides information on the breed, shows and sales.
