Saddlescombe Farm

Feeding lambs

Lambing Open Days — 30th and 31st March plus 6th and 7th April 2019, 10:00am–4:00pm. No need to book — just turn up.

Please join us on our working family farm for our annual lambing open days. We open the farm gates for visitors to see us at our busiest time and share with us the hustle and bustle of our farmyard during lambing. 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 and the vital role they play in managing the precious species rich chalk downland on the South Downs. Other highlights include bale climbing, pigs, tractor and trailer rides (weather permitting), BBQ, and vegetarian food from the Wildflour Cafe.
