Farmer James

James Osborne a former pupil of Heathfield Knoll School brought in an Easter surprise for Nursery, Preschool and Reception pupils. 

James is a local farmer who farms ground in Wolverley, Kinver and Enville. James and his family have a small flock of Badger Face Welsh Mountain Sheep which is a native breed.  James keeps the Torddu variety which translates from Welsh to English as black-bellied. The badger faced sheep get their names as they have distinct markings on their face and legs similar to that of the badger. The sheep are a welsh breed which is a hardy mountain variety that thrives on the rough welsh terrain. They also flourish on the lowland ground and love living with James at his farm. 

James attended Heathfield Knoll School attaining good grades and went on to study agriculture at Rodbaston College. To further his knowledge and education in agriculture James went to Harper Adams University to complete his degree. 

Miss Evans, Reception class teacher was excited to see the sheep and learn about the breed. In the Summer Term Reception will be learning about animals and furthering their knowledge with the life cycle of an egg, its incubation and how it hatches into a chick! Miss Evans said “Thank you so much to Farmer James. The children loved learning about the animals and asked lots of interesting questions.”
