Suzanna Crampton was born in New York but baptised in Ennisnag in County Kilkenny and has deep family roots in Kilkenny.
Over the years she has been an actor, a photographer and has worked with exotic widlife having studied agriculatural science.
She has returned to Kilkenny and is current farming, blogging and tweeting about her rare Zwartable sheep which has become her life’s work. We’ll let Suzanna fill you in herself:
A friend and neighbour once said to me that I should get involved in a rare breed of pedigree sheep rather then a commercial flock, as I hadn’t the land to make a sustainable living from them. So I went to the Ploughing Championships when they were held just up the road in Burnchurch and spotted these unique chic looking sheep. I bought three hoggets and one pregnant ewe from Ray Sweeny of Ardee. As luck would have it two of the hoggets happened to be in lamb so doubled my flock at half the price in no time.
