My fiancée and I have gone for the lamb tour for the past three years and we've never been disappointed - our future farmer certificates are displayed proudly on a shelf in the living room

Had such a great time meeting the lambs and lambing the model sheep in vet school! Will definitely be back for pumpkins in the autumn! :))

I came to meet the lambs for the first time on Sunday after coming across Bates Farm on Instagram. Grace and I had such a fantastic time, learning about lambing season on the farm. An insightful experience into a real working farm. Great job, keep it up ☺️
