Saddlescombe Farm

Feeding lambs

Lambing Open Days — 24th, 25th, and 31st March plus 1st April 2018, 10:00am–4:00pm. No need to book — just turn up.

Please join us on our working farm for our annual lambing open days here at Saddlescombe. We open our gates for our visitors to see us at our busiest time and share with us the hustle and bustle of our farmyard during lambing. Our visitors will see newborn lambs and maybe a lamb being born, an amazing experience. We are keen to share the respect and care we give our sheep right the way through to when we sell them for meat. Our own delicious lamb burgers will be available for a tasty lunch plus vegetarian food and refreshments from the Wildflour Cafe here at Saddlescombe Farm. Tractor and trailer rides will be running subject to weather conditions. There will be activities running for children from the National Trust (bread making on the 24th March) RSPB (25th March and 1st April), Red Fox Forest School (24th and 25th March), also local butchers Garlic Wood will have a butchery stall selling Saddlescombe meat and other local produce to take home.
