Christopher and Lindsey MayGeorge Island Group

Own and run the George Island Group of Islands to the south-west of East Falkland.

Chris and Lindsey have owned and worked farms since 1988; they sold their mainland farm in 2001 and bought George & Barren Islands followed by Speedwell Island in 2006. "Initially we were wool producers but since the opening of the Sand Bay abattoir we have been one of the larger family owned producers supplying sheep and lamb.

Meat now brings in roughly 35% of our income. Our 5,300 sheep are ranch farmed and have free access to natural pasture. No herbicides or pesticides are used on our islands."
