Lesley Prior has been farming cashmere goats and bowmont sheep since 2002.
She is willing to pay more for textile processing with some of the best in the world… in Yorkshire and Lancashire. As a farmer aware of the environmental impacts of processing fibre, she is passionate about keeping her trade in the UK. Processing in less developed countries uses facilities with lower environmental standards and poor working conditions. The superior environmental laws in the UK allow Lesley to feel secure that her product is having as little negative impact on the environment.
