Having originally farmed the Chaileybrook flock of pedigree Southdowns in Kent, Jonathan Long and his family now reside in Herefordshire where the flock is run alongside the Littlebrook flock of Blue Texels, owned by the “junior shepherd”, Sophie Long.

These pedigree flocks also run alongside commercial ewes, largely a mix of Blue Texel cross, Lleyn and Romney ewes with a move towards more Romney ewes put to Southdown, Blue Texel and Beltex tups.
