Bottle Feeding Lambs in Spring


"Every day is a school day" people say and this is certainly true not only for our visitors but also ourselves as you never know what might happen down on the farm.  Our bespoke tour takes approximately 1-1.5 hours and we will tailor it where possible to your individual requests so please let us know of any specific needs you have.  The tour involves hand feeding many of our friendly animals including our cows, sheep, goats, alpacas & Lucy, the micropig. You may be lucky and see a new-born lamb, kid or calf take their very first staggery steps. Bottle feeding the Spring lambs and kids is always a favourite of our visitors. During your guided tour hear our farming families’ story and learn where your food comes from.  Meet Timmy our cherished vintage tractor and get up close with Farmer Graemes' big boys toys.  Our standard farm tour is dog friendly but please do let us know in advance if you are bringing your dog.

So why not visit us and learn where your food comes from whilst making memories to last a lifetime. You can also extend your day by bringing a picnic in warmer weather (or order one from us in advance) as we have plenty picnic tables and take the opportunity to soak up the tranquil, rural landscape or enjoy a walk in the fresh air.


For Travel Trade and bespoke, private tours, birthday parties, playgroups, school visits, youth groups, agricultural groups and anyone who needs any extra information or assistance please contact Louise directly via facebook, email, or phone to discuss your specific requirements.  We aim to be as flexible as we can and to give you an amazing personal experience.  Group visits will not require 1 adult: 2 children ratio
