Lefkimi Kerkyra

 

History

Lefkimi Sheep is an old breed originating in Lefkimi in the south of the island of Corfu. In 2010 a private breeder initiated an island-wide search for the last animals with the Lefkimi phenotype. As a result a small nucleus of the breed was formed and selectively bred on the advice of the ‘Amalthia Network’.
