Brighton & Hove Sheepshare

Brighton & Hove Sheep Share scheme aims to get sheep that are currently grazing in and around Brighton and Hove back into the city as lamb, and share the meat between interested residents.
The sheep that graze the downs are Herdwicks which are the best sheep for grazing downland landscapes, helping to conserve the land.  They are grazed on the downs, fattened up over the summer on grass and in the winter fed on root vegetables grown by the farm.
In May 2015 Brighton and Hove Community Supported Agriculture became a community interest company.
