Working Shepherds Crooks

I have made a few of these sticks now and they are very popular amongst shepherds and small holders who have a few sheep etc they need to catch.

An hours work with the help of a shepherds crook!

Today, I went out apple collecting as we are trying to make some homemade cider this year. These sticks are a little longer than a normal walking/market stick so give you some extra reach for shaking those top branches for apples. We used the stick to great success and within an hour had several apples ready for scratting and then pressing.

These sticks are not as pretty as a traditional shepherds crook but are good working sticks every small holder/farmer should have in the back of their 4×4.
