'Lambing Live' at Overbury

Well here it is, I have finally got round to blogging again after a very very busy few weeks.  On Sunday  17th April we had our annual 'Lambing Live' event at Park Farm, home to our flock of Mule and Mule x Texel ewes.  We were very lucky with the weather with hot sunshine all day for our visitors.  In total somewhere between 850-1,000 people turned up to learn about our sheep flock and how we manage the farm and the conservation on Bredon Hill.  I managed to get some video footage early in the day which can be seen here on the blog.  It will give you an idea of the event and what can be seen.  In addition to the clip we had Paul, Rod and Tom our Gamekeepers talking about life as a keeper.  At the village hall we had lots of displays of local food including the very first opportunity to purchase cotswoldflour and lamb burgers being sold by our great friends at Eckington Manor Cookery School
