Lambing Live Open Day – Sunday 13th April 2014
Our extremely popular Lambing Live Open Day has been scheduled for Sunday 13th April 2014. The first tractor and trailer will leave Overbury Village hall at 10am, with the last coming down from Park Farm at 3.30pm.
A short tractor and trailer ride (which is the only way to access the lambing sheds) takes you up to 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. The ‘Overbury Pantry’ will be selling homemade produce as well – yummy cakes, chutneys and jams, made by the lovely people of Overbury to help raise money for the Overbury Village Hall.
We charge £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. There is plenty of free parking available.
Our 2013 Lambing Live Day was on Sunday 14th April. For more details on how the day went, please see click here.
