Shepherding Experience

We love holding the sheepdog displays during the summer, but to really understand what the Borough farm sheepdogs are capable of, you really need to see them at work in their natural environment. I’m lucky that I farm a flock of sheep which graze over some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the country at the National Trust’s Morte Point.

Thursday evening at 6pm on June 3rd, then every Thursday July 1st to September 2nd 2021

(September walks at 5pm)

For the 8th year we’re adding Shepherding Experience walks to our calendar of events. I’ll take small groups (up to 2o people) for a two hour tour of Morte Point. It’s a chance to hear about shepherding life, about the sheep and about the training of the Borough Farm sheepdogs. This year  the sheepdog work will be shared between Sweep, Mirk and Glen. They’ll give a demonstration of their amazing work on the cliff tops, through the rough terrain and working far into the distance. Both are really  top notch sheepdogs, and when they are on form their abilities are quite simply amazing. may also put in an appearance.
