Landes sheep

Our flock of Landes sheep consists of 20 to 25 heads. These sheep are among the most resistant on the planet, capable of surviving summers of over 42°C and the icy snow and rain of the swampy Landais winters. They survived on the moors before Napoleon 3 planted the pine forest in the 19th century. They have this characteristic black head and can make all-black young, even if the parents are white.

They move constantly on the farm, between meadows and cereal fields. They are used in the fields to clean up the green manures but also to clean up after the grass has grown back after the wheat and just before putting in the green manures.

We mow them in the spring and use the wool to put around the trees and fertilize each fruit tree.
