Barras Farm, Kirkby Stephen
Alan Alderson is chair of the Swaledale Sheep Breeders’ Association. He farms from Barras Farm on the flank of the hills above Kirkby Stephen, overlooking the vast expanse of flat land west of the Pennines.
Swaledale sheep are native to the East Cumbria and Yorkshire hills, and are valued for cross-breeding to produce sheep for lowland farms.
