NATIONAL CHAMPION DORSET DOWN FLOCK – 2017 & 2018

News for September

We hope you are still staying safe and well?

For anyone following our exciting project news, we have now been granted planning permission and our new buildings are on order……..

Elsewhere on the farm the ewes are now being flushed ready to go to the rams in early October, and the lambs are growing on nicely.

We are also still updating a few sections of our website, so please bear with us while these changes occur. In the meantime if you can’t find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are beginning to get short of stock on some breeds of our raw fleece, so act now to get your winter stock of fleece. We still have plenty of sheepskin rugs in stock and have a few rugs priced as second quality, should you want to treat your pet to luxury this winter, without the expense of a regularly priced sheepskin rug.

Remember Rampisham Hill Farm is also on Facebook! Keep up-to-date with news from the farm at: https://www.facebook.com/rampishamhillfarm.co.uk

About Rampisham Hill Farm

Rampisham Hill Farm is a small traditional livestock farm situated in the beautiful area of West Dorset, just outside the picturesque village of Hooke, and a short distance from the World Heritage Site of  Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast. 

Built in the 1600’s Rampisham Hill Farm was originally just stock buildings on a drovers track over the downs, before becoming a thriving dairy farm when the drovers track was widened into a village link. Now Rampisham Hill Farm comprises rolling downland pasture and ancient woodland, which is grazed by native Pedigree Dorset Down Sheep. Other animals include pigs, chickens, ducks and horses.  Please visit the individual Sheepskin rugs or Wool & Raw fleeces pages for more information and the Dorset Down breeding stock for sale page.

Lamb, pork, vegetables and eggs are sold fresh from the farm at various times of the year – please see the Fresh produce page for more details.  At Rampisham Hill Farm we strongly believe that conservation can work hand in hand with commercial farming – please see the Conservation page for more details and events.

We hope you enjoy reading about the farm, please contact us if you require any further information.
