Welcome to the farm
Lambing Open Days - 28th and 29th March, 4th and 5th April 2020

Open Days Cancelled

We’re sorry to say that our Lambing Open Days for this year are cancelled.  We have been glued to the news like everyone else and following Government guidance.   However, given the number of friends and family needed to provide a safe experience for our visitors, and the additional measures required under these circumstances, it is not possible for us to go ahead this year.   We’re really disappointed but the safety of our visitors, friends and family has to come first.  Please keep in touch on social media, we will still be posting images about our wonderful sheep and lambs and lots of you will see them soon out in the fields as you drive past.  We do feel there is a strong feeling of all being in this together.

We do have lamb burgers for sale as a result of cancelling the open days, they will be ready from next Friday 27th, please can you  email us This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with your contact details and we will arrange a safe way for everyone to come and collect them.  They are £6 for a pack of 5.  We also have lamb for sale, joints and mince, please email us This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it If we don’t’ reply straight away please be patient, we are busy looking after all of our new arrivals!

We look forward to seeing you all again soon at the farm and thank you for all your support.
