Arnprior Lambing 2017
Sat 8 April 2017, 13:00 – 14:00 BST
What is this?
Come and visit our farm during one of the busiest times of the year, lambing time.
With nearly 1200 expectant ewes (mummy sheep) to lamb this spring, this is your chance to get a real first hand experience of what it is like to be a farmer at this time of year.
You will be able to help care, feed, bed and water the ewes and their new born lambs.
And with any luck, witness the birth a new life onto the farm. (Although this can’t be guaranteed for obvious reasons)
How long does it last?
Your booked slot will last 1 hour. In this time, you can help the farmer with the chores in the lambing shed, or if you prefer, just soak up the atmosphere and play with lambs!
What do I wear?
Bring outdoor clothing, preferably water-proof & that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty! Wear outdoor footwear, wellies are ideal.
We will provide latex gloves for extra health and safety
Who can come?
We invite everyone from school age (4 1/2) onwards to come to this experience.
If you are trying for a baby, think /are pregnant, we advise that you do not take part in this experience this year…
*If you are allergic to hay or straw, we advise that you don’t take part in the ‘sheep feeding/bedding’ activity!
Hand wash facilities will be provided and we stress the need for high level of hygiene.
