Farm Club!

Last Saturday we held our first farm club, they were introduced to their new clubhouse hopefully bringing pictures they have drawn of the animals with them next week to decorate it and make it their own! All the kids had a brilliant time feeding the animals around the farm trail, the rain certainly didn't put them off, jumping in every puddle we passed! They especially enjoyed cuddles with the rabbits and helping to look after them, aswell as grooming the pony! If you would like your child to join us then please call us to book them in. Saturday mornings 9.30am-11am £6/child.

Enjoying the sunshine

It is hectic on the farm at the moment. There are all of the animals to feed, muck out and check they're healthy as well as serving our customers in the shop or talking to visitors about the farm. But when I get a moment, one of my favourite things to do is to go and watch the younger animals.

Cecile, our Highland cow, is a very protective mother. Her calf, Dora, is a heifer which means she's a girl. She doesn't have any horns at the moment but as she gets older she will grow a fine pair like her mum. Every day she is becoming braver and venturing further away from her mum. Yesterday evening, after the visitors had left, I took a few minutes to watch as she was investigating the far end of the field and obviously really enjoying the evening sunshine. I went home with a happy smile on my face - I have the best job in the world!

New lambs

Our flock of sheep has grown in recent weeks. There are four new lambs which have recently been weaned and so are able to live away from their mothers. They are all gimmers (female) so in the future they will form the basis of our breeding flock.

We also have a Jacob ewe called Jasmine. She is the black and white sheep with the big horns that curve back over her head. Some Jacob sheep can have as many as six horns! Jacob sheep originally come from the Mediterranean area but they have been bred in this country for over 250 years.

And finally there is Heather the Hebridean sheep who is black all over. Hebridean sheep are a small breed native to the Hebridean Islands of Scotland. They can have either two or four horns which curl round behind their ears.
