We met a tall 'ginger' Scottish man (if he'd been dark, the story may of been a different one). At the very exclusive sheep 2000 show in Torquay whilst staying with Auntie Jo & stealing a few days away from the farm (Matt knows how to show a girl a good time). Back then we bred the ewes for the meat sheep market.
The tall ginger Scottish man said we should milk sheep as it’s a better cash flow and a growing industry.
We thought long and hard about the commitment it would be to milk for 180 days or more without a break and the disruption it may cause to our kids, not to mention the investment in plant and sheep. We went to see some dairies & tasted the milk, remember the old style gold top milk? Well, we think sheep milk tastes just like that..
