About Jacksmere Pure Breeds.
Myself, known as Barney and Partner Tracy run a 20 acre smallholding.
We are based in West Lancashire.
Concentrating on pure and rare breed poultry. Also running two breeds of sheep, Jacobs and Ryelands. We pride ourselves on producing hardy, quality friendly stock. We are members of the Ryeland Flock Book Society and I am a member of the Jacob Sheep Society.
We support our local poultry club, Southport and Ormskirk Bantam Society ( Affiliated by the Poultry Club of Great Britain of which I am also a member).
We are very interested in ornithology, wildlife and all types of nature. We have planted lots of hedging, trees and created a wildlife pond. We don't use any pesticides or herbicides.
We like to eat as naturally as possible. We have our own orchard with old varieties of apples, pears, plums and damsons. We have lots of various fruit bushes and have our own veg plot.
We are very much into self sufficiency. A lot of our electricity comes from solar and wind power. We grow bio mass willow for firewood logs. We rainwater harvest, producing more than enough water for us and our livestock. We recycle anything and everything where possible.
Purpose of this website (still in creation) is mainly to promote the selling of our Rare Breed Poultry, Jacob Sheep, Ryeland Sheep and anything relating to our smallholding. See stock for sale page.
For bio security and work load reasons, we are not open to the public. Interested persons requiring sheep can view by appointment. For customers requiring poultry, they can be collected from my yard by appointment.
