Hurrah! It’s Lambing time again here at Roves Farm. This is a highlight of our year, welcoming new life onto the farm.
Spend some time on our viewing walkway looking out over the lambing barn as the day’s action unfolds. You may be lucky enough to see a lamb or two being born! Our lambing dates are:
9th – 13th January
6th – 23rd April
We have two flocks here at Roves. The first to lamb are the Poll Dorset ewes in January. They are very calm and friendly and enjoy all the attention they get at lambing time. Visitors can walk among them and get up close to the lambs. A unique and amazing experience!
Our second flock are the Suffolk cross ewes, who lamb in April. They are more nervous than the Poll Dorset breed so not so easy to make friends with! However, you can still view them and their lambs from the walkway. Visitors can also help with bottle feeding some of the lambs when they are a few weeks old.
And of course, there will be all the usual fun on the farm with activities, indoor & outdoor play, tractor rides* (from Feb half term onwards, subject to ground conditions), Rugrats & Rascals sessions, meet & feed the animals & lots more.
*£1.50pp, under 3’s ride for free.
