North Country Cheviot

The North Country Cheviot – a big, long, robust white sheep which combines thriftiness and healthiness with prolificacy and strong maternal qualities. It is the largest of all the UK hill breeds and is particularly suited to grassy hills and uplands, though will adapt to most environments.

North Country Cheviot ewes, found on some of hardest ground in the country, are particularly kind mothers, easy to handle at lambing time, with few lambing problems.They can produce quality lambs under the most rigorous and demanding conditions and are noted for their longevity. 

The wide variety of types within the North Country Cheviot breed ensures that crossing rams are available to meet most conditions.  Another important factor of the breed is their working lives are considerably longer than most other breeds.
