The Flock

Local farmer, Steve Forsyth, has been rearing sheep in the Brecon Beacons for over 30 years. One of his rams was Reserve Male Champion at the Royal Welsh Show in 2017, and was Male Champion and received the top retail price for a ram at the last annual Black Welsh Mountain Society Breed Sale.

His Farm Assured flock is two different breeds:

  • Black Welsh Mountain are a speciality sheep with a slightly smaller frame but a distinctive flavour.
  • The main flock are Cheviot and Texel x ewes, which are perfectly adapted to life on the Welsh hillside, and produce premium lamb.
