We are a small family run farm in the heart of Cornwall. We produce beautiful lamb's wool, soft sheepskins and delicious meat from our flock of Romney sheep.

Romneys are renowned for their high value wool which is fantastic for crafting, handspinning and sheepskins.

We love our sheep and manage the land for wildlife, including our beautiful wet meadow which is part of a County Wildlife Site. Our hens, bees and cows also keep us busy!

The name Ruzza comes from the Cornish Rosow, which means hill spurs. The farm was recorded as Rosou in the Lanhydrock Atlas of 1697.

Please do contact us if you have any queries about our products.
