New arrivals on the Farm

New-arrivalsOn Tuesday 3 March, our first lambs of the year were born on the farm.  This is the first birth from 13 ewes who are expecting lambs before Easter.

After Easter, it will be the turn of our remaining 22 black-faced Suffolks. In total, we are expecting our ewes to give birth to 25 sets of twins and 9 singles.

You can come along and see all of the lambs on Sunday 19 April at our annual Lambing Day. Free entry with a BBQ and refreshments. Donations as always are more than welcome.
