Owner of a huge flock of Wens­ley­dales

Meet Jane – farm owner, spin­ner of 100% Wens­ley­dale wool and yarn shop owner

Up early or slow to rise? Up early and out to see my sheep – even on Christ­mas Day!

First job of the day? Break­fast for 500! Se­ri­ously, this is a fan­tas­tic time to check the sheep, which we typ­i­cally keep in flocks of 50. So that’s 10 groups to feed and check each morn­ing. I love it for three sea­sons of the year and don’t like to think about the fourth!

Mid-morn­ing pick me up? A lovely large mug of tea and some home­made cake. Fave time to sit back and take five? I’m still wait­ing for this one!

Leisurely lunchtime? Eat­ing my sand­wich out­side and be­ing pestered by our guinea fowl.

Post-lunch pri­or­i­ties? Sort­ing wool and fleece and pack­ing wool kits to try to beat the post. Talk­ing to cus­tomers – I have just opened a small woolly farm shop.

Clock­ing o time? Clock­ing o for me is cook­ing din­ner and then knit­ting with a large glass of wine, of course.
