I have been lucky enough to be selected as a stallholder at the Bakewell wool gathering, to be held at the Bakewell agricultural centre on 9th and 10th October 2021. Fingers crossed that COVID will allow it to take place.

Climate change, rewilding, carbon neutral and nature friendly are the buzz words of the moment.
People are increasingly becoming more aware of the damage we humans are causing to the planet.
Here at Hawkshaw Sheep HQ, looking after the sheep is done as sustainably as possible, the numbers of sheep kept on the farm are at a much lower number than the land could support to allow wildlife and vegetation space to thrive, the sheep themselves are free to roam and behave in a manner they would if they were in the wild without any human intervention.
The sheep are being bred to be self sufficient, to survive and produce lambs from what they can forage from the land.
To find out in more detail how the sheep are managed, go to the Shepherds year page.
