This experience is ideal for complete beginners keen to find out what happens during lambing time on the farm, and would like a hands-on experience, warts and all! This is only suitable for age 18+.
Join our lambing team for the day, and get hands-on with an informal but action-packed introduction to lambing. The day will include a mix of listening, observing and doing, as we will share how we do it here at Church Farm. It's a fantastic birthday gift or experience for someone you love.
It's an 8 hour day, starting the day at 7.30am meeting at the Farm Shop Reception, lunch is included and the day will finish at approximately 3.30pm.
Advance booking is essential as places are limited and for selected dates in March and April 2020 only! Make it an overnight experience by adding on one of our Glamping packages too!
Note dates selected upon booking for all 2020 bookings .
What to Expect
The recipient will get truly hands-on with our lambs during lambing season with one of our farmers. Lambing time is one of the most challenging and exciting times of year in the farming calendar, it is manic and a 24/7 operation!
Join our lambing team and learn how to care for pregnant sheep, to recognise signs of labour, to spot common problems and unusual behaviours and to care for the ewes and lambs after birth and much more.
Expect the unexpected and be prepared for spending most of the time outdoors and in the sheds. Please bring clean and warm clothes, waterproofs and wellies - for those who don’t mind getting mucky!
• Lambing experience for one adult 18 years+ • Hands on experience with our lambs and ewes. • Breakfast roll in the cafe plus tea or coffee to start the day. • Light lunch in our Farm Café onsite. • Opportunity to ask questions throughout the day. • Coffee or tea during the day.
