Our story begins in 1834, when Henry and Grace Dangar bought “Gostwyck Farm”, in the beautiful high country of northern New South Wales, Australia. Henry was a pioneer in Merino sheep breeding; one of the people that would make Australia the world’s biggest producer of wool. In 1854, in his quest for the best sheep, he travelled to Germany and sailed back with 28 Saxon rams – and two Saxony shepherds. The genes of those rams still flow through “Gostwyck Farm’s” flock, and the genes of those shepherds are still in the New England region.

henry and grace was founded on this heritage.
