Windy Ridge Hooly, comes from a line of UK Leicester Longwool Champions on both the sire and dams side.

Our flock was founded in the Autumn of 2007 with 2 breeding ewes from the Oxgang Flock, East Yorkshire, England. By 2020, we had 38 breeding ewes and 6 stock rams. Leicester Longwool sheep have high quality lustrous fleece, demonstrate evenness in length and diameter and have a Bradford count of 40-46. A staple of around 40 cm on an unshorn shearling is not unusual.

Rare breed Leicester Longwool ram is a Supreme Champion [2015]: Delighted Alan and Sonia Glover put their Windy Ridge Farm in Upton on the map when they grabbed the accolade at the Royal Three Counties National Rare and Minority Breeds Show at Malvern, England, UK . . .
