Ever wanted to see a lamb being born or feed a pet lamb? This hands-on lambing experience day is a real-life day spent with a farmer and his family on a 200 acre organic Welsh hill farm during spring lambing time.
Helping farmer Paul on his daily tasks, you will be taken around the farm and will spend time in the fields or lambing sheds where ewes are most likely about to give birth so you can hopefully witness this amazing spring event.
Whilst moving about the farm, the day includes checking sheep in the field, bedding down, marking, moving sheep and feeding any pet lambs. You can also collect eggs to take home from the farm’s organic hens. During this informal and engaging day you’ll be able to talk with your friendly hosts about the area, organic farming and the alternative energy initiatives on the farm. A tasty vegetarian homemade farmhouse lunch is included then you will be free to walk around the farm to enjoy the stunning views towards the Central Beacons.
We do have to mention though that as this is real life and there will probably be a few moments that are best avoided by the squeamish. ***Pregnant women are not allowed due to possible health risks. You will be walking along easy paths which can be uneven and muddy, but here are no steep inclines.
We cannot absolutely guarantee you will see a lamb being born but the odds are very favourable with over 400 ewes due to lamb in April, and it is also extremely likely that you will be able to feed an orphaned pet lamb.
This experience is conducted within very small groups, usually a maximum of x 6 and is not too suitable for very young children. All children must be accompanied by a paying adult. Please note we have some very friendly dogs but your own dogs are sadly not welcome for this experience due to possible stress levels for the sheep.
