Marriner Flock | Moving to fresh pastures

Written by

All of lambs have now arrived, and it’s already time to take their very first holiday as we relocate them to newer, fresh pastures.

Our flock are happy and content where they are, but by moving the mums onto fresher grass, it means that they can produce better quality milk to feed their little ones. This milk will be better for the lambs and make sure they are getting all they need from their mums.

Colin’s son, Phil, and his daughters, are taking charge of the relocation and have been busy ferrying the whole flock to their new field just down the road.

The lambs have been loving their new field already – occasionally even…

Marriner Flock | Get to know Marriner’s farmer

Written by

After introducing you to our flock and our gorgeous new lambs on the Marriner farm, we thought it was about time that you heard from Mr. Marriner himself, and how he came to be our farmer.

We couldn’t be happier that Colin’s ‘hobby’ has turned into something so wonderful. It’s been a great opportunity for a lot of the Marriner team to get involved, spend some time in the countryside, and see the very beginnings of the wool production process.

Marriner Flock | 12 week lamb scan…

Written by

Good news – after getting friendly with our rams Baarney and Hercules in November, our ladies were scanned this week to find out how many baby lambs will be joining us in spring. Just like humans, ewes are scanned around the 10/12 week point to find out the number of lambs they carry.

The vet uses an ultrasound scanner to determine how many lambs each ewe is carrying to then mark the sheep’s back with a specific colour.

Watch our video below where Rhos explains how the coloured dots indicate how many lambs…
