What's On This Month?

We have had a busy May at the farm, what with two bank holiday weekends and the upkeep of our lambs and their mothers! We’d love to let you know how we got on at one of the busiest periods of the year and to tell you what you can get up to if you plan to visit in June 2019.

 

Lambing Update

The lambs are now approximately 6 weeks old, dependant on the time of the month their mothers gave birth during the lambing period. Lambing began on 29th March, and this year we decided to keep our ewes outside to give birth in the field. This is because of the warm weather we have been so lucky to have had.

Farmer Rob was very busy feeding the little ones that may be weak at birth, and giving the mothers tender loving care to keep them strong… As our recent visitors have seen and recognised, the little ones are not so little anymore and growing rapidly. We must be doing something right! Lambing finished on 20th April and since then we have been looking after our hand reared lambs, and keeping an eye on the others in the process.

We have four lambs that are hand fed, of which only one is an orphan. Unfortunately, due to health and safety regulations, we are unable to allow our customers to help with the hand feeding of our lambs, however, you are able to view the natural behaviour of our lambs in the farm paddock.
