THE National Sheep Association (NSA) North Sheep 2021 will showcase a traditional Northumbrian farm.

The UK sheep industry’s main biennial events, attended by many Cumbrian sheep farmers, will be hosted by JE Woodman & Son at Bradford House Farm, near Ponteland, for the first time since 2011.

With thousands of farmers expected to attend from the length of breadth of the country, it will take place on Wednesday June 2 2021.

JE Woodman & Son is a farming enterprise headed up by noted livestock farmer Willie Woodman, who farms with his wife Christine and son Martin, will provide a glimpse into a traditional Northumberland farm. The 2130 acres they farm are located at two bases, 30 miles apart, and include the 930 acres Bradford House Farm near Ponteland and 1,200 acres Great Chesters, a hill farm in the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall.

NSA North Sheep is a showcase for all sectors of the sheep industry and a key date in the industry’s diary, with hundreds of trades stands, a series of seminars, and dozens of demonstrations, together with a farm tour of the Woodman’s sheep farming enterprise focussing on producing top quality prime lambs sold at Hexham Mart. Bradford Farm was purchased in 2002.
