Argyll Jacob Sheep

Jacob sheep at Kintaline
We have kept pure Jacobs here at Kintaline for nearly 30 years, and our original ewes were from an old local shepherd.
Our flock has reduced now to just a handful of ewes. Over the years we have improved our fleeces, and selected for meat – the first is wonderful to spin, and the latter very delicious.
We are keeping our flock small nowadays – so will have stock for sale
