Open Farm Days 2018

Open Lambing starts in...  

We open our farm every year for Open Lambing where you can see lambs being born and maybe cuddle an orphan lamb. We also have free tractor and trailer rides, chicks and ducklings handling area, a Café, and a Shop, and it's all in a friendly farm environment...

Every Open Day is open from 10am to 5pm, £6 per person, 2's and under are free. Cash only.

Once again, thanks to all the Volunteers and Visitors for your support, and we hope to see you all again!
