Melton Park English Leicester Stud

Rare Breeds:  English Leicester


Melton Park English Leicester Stud is a very special place in Tasmania.  Anne Heazlewood cares for her English Leicester sheep on the Heazlewood property where English Leicester sheep have been raised for over 150 years.  In fact, the property has been breeding English Leicester sheep since 1854!  Anne herself has had over 20 years experience with this breed.

Anne takes a sustainable/permaculture approach to farming.  Since the property has been involved with sheep for so long, the pastures are well maintained.  Therefore, fibre enthusiasts can be assured there is low veggie matter in her fleece. 

Anne is happy to get requests from interested fibre enthusiasts directly through the contact information listed below. Please contact her over the phone or email to find out just what she has available for you!
