A Pulborough vineyard has become the first in the country to use local sheep to help keep its vine areas in pristine condition.

A total of 250 local sheep have been put out to graze across Nyetimber’s vineyards. After a successful trial in 2011, this unusual seasonal workforce will be employed for the winter months, helping to keep the vineyards tidy in a winter ground mnagement plan.

Sheep grazing is an effective sustainable and ecological approach for ground management during the winter.
