The farm: “I farm with my grandfather Dan McCarthy. Together we farm sheep and sucklers. We have around 80ha, half of it would be commonage. I have been farming with him since I was small, he lives right next door so I am always over in the yard with him.”

Sheep: “There are 120 ewes, a mix of Swaledale, Scottish Blackface and Cheviot-cross. For the past two years we’ve been trying to bring the Scotch breed back into the flock so we have been using a Scotch ram. We want to put more ewes to the hill so we keep all our replacements.”
