     Welcome to Eggardon Rare Breeds

Our Farm

All of our animals are raised outside and fed a natural diet and allowed to roam free on the Dorset chalk hills on the North side of the beautiful Bride Valley. Our prize winning animals are matured slowly and naturally, to ensure flavour, succulence and quality.

Our Sheep

We have 18 different breeds of sheep including North Ronaldsay sheep which are more rare than the Giant Panda. We operate a staggered lambing programme so that there are lambs throughout the spring and summer into the Autumn. This ensures that we can give close attention to each and every one. Many of the sheep will feed from your hand and some will come for a walk, just like a dog.

Our Pigs

We have Berkshire pigs, British Lop and Oxford Sandy and Black pigs, also known as Plum Pudding pigs, because of their markings. We hope to have some Gloucester Old Spots another British Lop and  large Black very soon.  All have individual characters and just love visitors, especially if you feed them fruit or vegetables.

Our Products

We offer a range of products from hand-spun wool, and  sheepskins to fresh meat as well as other locally sourced products, such as cheese.  Our animals are allowed to roam free and cared for throughout their lives to ensure uncompromised quality, flavour and succulence.

How to Order

You may telephone or fax an order to 01308 482491 or email to and either collect your goods direct from the farm or we can arrange delivery. Payment is accepted from all major credit cards or via a Paypal account.
