About The Book

In an age that has seen unparalleled interest in personal food production, Lambs for the Freezer is a timely and comprehensive introduction to breeding and rearing lamb for home consumption. Writing for the small-scale sheep keeper with little or no knowledge of rearing livestock, Sue Kendrick draws on her own extensive experience of keeping farm animals to guide the new shepherd through the whole process of breeding, rearing and ultimately filling their freezer with home produced lamb.
