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 evenings at 6pm every Thursday July 4th to September 5th.

For the 11th 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 Mirk will be performing the sheepdog work. He’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.
