The herd of the capital sheep line is the result of a close relationship between innovation and tradition. Since its birth in 1997, it underwent a lively evolution in order to represent the most pleasant and fair work for both man, nature and animals.
“SPECIES” THAT STAND OUT.
While nowadays there is often a focus on mass instead of class when it comes to animal husbandry in general, I have returned to the roots of shepherding with my flock. This means that it was carefully considered which sheep breed can graze the local landscapes most efficiently, how many animals are really necessary for this and which framework conditions must be given in order to be able to work with nature.
And so today, during the summer months, we care for 110 hectares of fenland and 60 hectares of dry grassland in the nature reserves “Wegendorfer Mühlenfließ”, “Neuenhagener Mühlenfließ” and “Langes Elsenfließ”. Sensitive areas that demand a great deal of knowledge, caution and energy in order to be grazed appropriately and sustainably.
