The Shutecombe Jacob Flock

shutecombe-flockThe Shutecombe flock is a small flock of pedigree Jacob sheep established in 2010 by Peter and Bryn Gorringe. The flock is situated in West Devon near a small village called Bere Ferrers, on the edge of the of the river Tamar.

The aim of the flock is to produce high quality Jacob sheep, fantastic quality meats, jacob knitting wool and sheepskins. Our Jacob meat, full of flavour and very lean, is exclusive to The Olde Plough Inn at Bere Ferrers. Jacob sheepskins and locally spun jacob knitting yarn are available to buy from our on-line shop. If you are in or near Tavistock, you can also buy our knitting wool from Knitting Korner.
