Alderton Flock Celebrates 20 Years!

1st July 2019

July 2019

In July we celebrated our 20thAnniversary as Shropshire breeders. We started our flock back in 1999 with 25 ewes and a ram purchased from the Sidedowns flock of John and Pauline Bowles, based in Devon. At the time, the Shropshire was still a rare breed. We have greatly enjoyed being part of the Shropshire’s journey towards a brighter future as numbers have gradually increased and the breed was finally taken off the Rare Breeds “at risk” register in 2012.  We received a “Long Service” Bronze Award at the Society’s AGM in recognition of our two decades as breeders.
