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 1.5-2 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 meeting 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 and find their Mum. Whilst walking, 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 before enjoying refreshments and farmhouse baking. Our standard farm tour is dog friendly too!

So why not visit us and learn where your food comes from whilst making memories to last a lifetime for us all. 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.
