Racy Ghyll Farm

Our good friend, James Rebanks runs Racy Ghyll Farm with his wife Helen. They keep prize-winning Herdwick sheep and a growing herd of Belted Galloway cattle. It's a traditional upland family farm but with huge educational, cultural and social impact due to workshops, courses and events held on the farm around nature, regenerative farming and nature writing. James has written two bestselling books, The Shepherd's Life and English Pastoral

The fleece from the Herdwick sheep is made into our Ullswater tweed and throws.
