Dartmoor Sheep

Sarah Swadling meets a dynamic young farmer selling meat, wool, and sheepskins from three rare Devon breeds.

22 year old Lewis Steer has quadrupled the size of his sheep flock in a matter of months. He says he's the only farmer in the UK to keep all three of Dartmoor's native breeds together. Everything except the 'baa' is sold directly to the customer - meat, knitting wool, and sheepskins. Sarah Swadling meets Lewis as he prepares his flock for a business milestone, moving them to a large block of land he's renting for the first time.
