Great article about the Forbes family from nearby Dalrachie Farm – Willie and Jenny, son, Alan and his wife, Sarah-Jane.
"Making ends meet in an era of ever diminishing returns is far from easy, however it is achievable by consistently producing a quality product and one that regularly attracts premium prices."
Sarah-Jane, who works full-time at the Woolmill, and Alan own a flock of 320 hill-type North County Cheviot ewes. The vast majority are crossed to a traditional-type Bluefaced Leicester to breed Cheviot Mules, while the remaining 50 - Achentoul bred ewes - are kept pure.
