Open Farm Days 2016

Open Lambing starts in...  

We open our farm twice a year for two events, Open Lambing where you can see lambs being born and maybe cuddle an orphan lamb, and Open Shearing where you can see 'live' shearing demonstrations and Sheepdog trials. At each event 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...

NEWSFLASH - The Festival of Horsemanship joins Open Shearing!

Open Shearing combines with The Festival of Horsemanship to give you spectacular mounted displays, shearing demonstrations, dog and duck displays, an in depth look into equine health and horsemanship, opportunities to talk to the experts, with lectures and displays from professionals and practitioners, with exhibitors too for all your shopping needs. Plus, of course, plenty of lambs, horses, chicks and ducklings to enjoy, and free tractor & trailer rides - check out the website for more info...
