With over 2000 sheep to give birth, this is a unique chance to see lambs actually being born, taking those first few steps and suckling their mothers for the first time. With our sheep shearing sessions you can see wool ready for knitting. You will be able to walk around the sheep and lambs in the fields and you can take a tractor and trailer ride around the fields (weather permitting). See our traditionally reared turkeys, visit the craft barn, try our turkey burgers on the Bar-B-Q or just bring your own picnic. We feel sure you will enjoy your day out on the farm. Please consult the website for dates, and times of opening.
