Sandlands Farm is situated in the heart of the Wreake valley, just outside Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. Sandlands is a 20ha County Council smallholding, but with other land rented in a variety of agreements the total area farmed is approximately 350ha, mostly grassland but some cereals and forage crops.
The main focus of our business are the sheep flocks and our aim with these is to make them profitable, easy to manage and enjoyable to work with.
The Charollais, now the UK's premier easy lambing terminal sire breed, has been a major part of our business for 35 years. Without doubt the breed now provides commercial farms with easily born, vigourous, quick growing and well fleshed lambs - an ideal combination.
