Open Farm Lambing Day


A really big thank you to the 319 people who turned out to visit us on the 29th March for our Farm Lambing Day. The weather men, unfortunately, got the forecast correct with a bright morning followed by raining the afternoon. It really did get very cold. Every-one, however had a really great day out! There were lambs popping out everywhere, video's to watch and lots of dead animals, supplied by the game department to study and look closely at. Do you know the difference between a stoat and a weasel, a pole cat and a mink? Here is Tod lambing a particularly tight ewe with a watching audience with baited breath for the outcome! Do NOT forget the LEAF Open Farm Sunday on the 1st of June, I will keep you posted with regular post here or look up the LEAF website!

I really like the style of farmer Jake - everyone can get something out of it. Do you know Practical Farm Ideas? www.farmideas.co.uk I started it in the farm kitchen in 1992, so farmers can share cost cutting ideas. We have featured some really interesting sheep managment ideas - including out door lambing! i'd be really interested in hearing how you got on. 01994 240978
