Pitt Island Wild Sheep, named Pihepe, originate from Saxony Merinos. They were sent to Pitt Island in the Chatham Islands off the East coast of New Zealand in 1841 by Baron von Alsdorf. In 1843, Frederick Hunt was the first person to farm them on Pitt Island.
They have now been thriving in this challenging environment, untouched by man since then. Lying 12 miles SE of Chatham Islands, Pitt Island is as far away from crowded cities as you can get. It is the most Southern and Eastern inhabited island in the world.
