Arapawa Sheep

Arapawa sheep are rare breed sheep originating from Arapawa Island in the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand. They are hardy, intelligent and attractive sheep with very fine, soft and bouncy fleeces which are typically 16-24 micron and they now come in a range of colours from our farm. The meat is very lean and sweet making it ideal for people wanting to reduce fat in their diet.

A rainbow of colours from black to spotty and virtually everything inbetween! Lambs are normally available for purchase from August onwards.

We currently run 3 adult rams producing a variety of colours: black, golden and highly spotty lambs.
