As seen on BBC Countryfile
Meet Emma and Stuart
Hello and welcome to our page, we have been living in Cornwall for 9 years and own 10.5 acres of beautiful Cornish country side.
We are lucky enough to enjoy working and farming here, we breed Alpacas and Valais Blacknose sheep.
We were inspired to breed Valais Blacknose sheep after seeing them on BBC Countryfile, we spent 2 years trying to get a small breeding flock over to the UK and we have finally managed it!
To find out more about our sheep head over to the sheep page!

The Valais region of Switzerland is where the Blacknose sheep come from. The Valais (French) or Wallis ( German) region is one of 26 Cantons of Switzerland and is home to 41 mountains higher than 4000m ASL. It is situated in the southwestern part of the country, and extends from the source of Rhone along the Rhone Valley to Lake Geneva. It's Pennine Alps border the Italian Po Plain to the south and the Bernese Alps to the north.
This Canton in the central Rhone Valley is simultaneously one of the driest regions of Switzerland and amongst the wettest, having large amounts of snow nearly all year round up on the highest peaks of Switzerland. The Canton of Valais is widely known for the Matterhorn and resort towns such as Saas Fee, Verbier, and Zermatt. It is composed of 13 districts and it's capital is Sion.
