    Someone suggested the Suffolk the other day and said they are good eating and can be friendly?
    Certainly are good eating. In all honesty though I'd look into Wiltshire Horns or Dorpers. Both shed their fleece do no need to shear them.

    If we're talking right now...awhile! We have ds's 1st birthday party tomorrow so there is an abundance of food

    Usually though, I shop fortnightly (except f&v/milk) and literally end up with bare pantry, fridge and freezer by the end. I only buy what we need and nothing more

    I reckon a week. .of strangely combined foods. Finances have been tight so have been "eating out of the pantry/freezer" for a couple weeks. ..getting low now and there's only so many baked beans you can eat!

    Quite a few folk out here have gone into Dorpers and Damaras both don't need shearing, so just meat sheep.
    As I said, this farm has always had Merinos but we're pretty much going to go full cropping once our lambs are gone. Big change!

    Easily 2 weeks and can stretch it to 3 if I want to. We go for 2 weeks without buying veg/fruit. I only top up milk if thay. A 3 litre bottle lasts us nearly 2 weeks sometimes. I've just recently ran out of nuts but otherwise I've got staples of everything. Freezer is fully stocked but i ran out of lettuce today so it would have to be different types of salad. I bought an upright freezer and it's been a massive blessing. I don't like to freeze pre cooked meals only prepare fresh meats then freeze.

    I would say easily 3 months, if I got creative! I bulk shop for majority of things. I have about 6 months worth of toilet paper so I could barter with the neighbours 😉

    I think around 2 months, if I used all the pantry staples. Maybe 3 -4 months if I employed severe rationing techniques. We have a modest veggie patch &some fruit trees,which would add something fresh.
