About Us

Top Class Derbyshire Gritstone Sheep

Since 1975 we’ve been breeding high quality pure bred Derbyshire Gritstone sheep. In 40+ years we've produced over 500 registered breeding rams that have gone on to have a major influence on the breed across the land. The High Moor flock has produced the champion tup at the annual show and sale an unrivaled 15 times since 1983!

We're active members of the Derbyshire Gritstone Sheepbreeders Society - find more about the breed on their website here: www.derbyshiregritstonesheep.com

 

At High Moor Farm we run approximately 350 Derbyshire Gritstone ewes at over 1,000 feet above sea-level. The Harrop & Upper Edge flocks are about 20 breeding ewes apiece. Tupping time is from mid-November with lambs born outside from mid-April.
