In 2010 a small flock of pedigree Hampshire Down ewes was established at East Fortune Farm, being very particular in the ewes selected from other breeders. The flock originally was 16, made up of 9 lambs and 7 ewes. Now after some very successful winter lambing the East Fortune flock stands at 45 breeding ewes and growing. The East Fortune flock is all MV Accredited and Signet Recorded. So in just a few years we have bred some fine Hampshire’s some of which we very successfully enjoyed showing this summer.


Ram East Fortune 12039 Angus (73Z12011 Genotype ARR/ARR). Angus was the Royal Highland Show Hampshire Down Champion in 2014 and was highly regarded in this year’s Flock Competition by judge Kevin McCarthy as the best seen ram. Sired by THORBECK 10096 THOR, Dame RABURN 26X09158
