Thank you for visiting my website. My name is James and I’m a contract shepherd based in South West Scotland. I currently manage a flock of Scotch mules, as well as my own purebred flock of Lleyns, alongside contracting work around the UK.
Originally from Wales, this website started off as a blog to keep my family and friends updated on what I was doing after moving north to Scotland, but it has since developed to include opinions on farming news, as well as my experiences and what I’m learning along the way.
As well as working with sheep and producing content for my own blog, I write for a number of different publications including Farming Scotland magazine, and I have been featured in the Farmer’s Weekly and the Farmer’s Guardian.
