Lambing Live Open Day – 2014 Sunday April 13th
Our extremely popular Lambing Live Open Day has been scheduled for Sunday 13th April 2014.
A short tractor and trailer ride takes you up to our lambing sheds at Park Farm, where our flock of ewes can usually be counted on to give birth whilst you’re there! You can stay up at the sheds for as long as you like. There are lots of interesting displays on our work on the Farm, including one hosted by our Warrener’s (Game Keeping) team which is always a firm favourite. Gamekeeper Paul’s preview can be watched on YouTube on the new Overbury Channel.
Before or after your visit to the sheds, there are more displays to take in at the Village Hall where there’s also the opportunity to have a bite of lunch or to just sit back and relax with a cup of tea and a bun.
We charge a £5 for the trailer rides (accompanied children are free) and we have to insist that pregnant ladies do not go up to the lambing sheds due to health and safety concerns.
