Meet the Lambs at Bates Farm
Join us on the farm this Spring! The session will be a hands-on, educational experience where you will get to meet and hold the lambs.
The session will last 90 minutes and will consist of:
- Farm Tour – Learn how we look after the lambs and also get to meet & cuddle them. You will get to see our calves, bulls and sit on our big tractors too. The tour will last approximately 60 mins.
- Farm Education – Join our farm ‘vet school’ where you will try to lamb a demonstration ewe, take part in our interactive quiz and get presented with your Bates Farm certificate! This part of the session will last 30 mins.
To refuel after your farm tour, you can enjoy tea & coffee refreshments at your leisure. There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout.
Spaces are limited to ensure that you and the animals get the best experience.
Please read carefully before booking your visit
Please note there will be no bottle feeding in the session. We work hard to make sure that the lambs are fed by their Mum, as this is more natural and healthier for them.
We advise that pregnant women do not come to the farm during lambing season. There is a risk that coming into contact with sheep and lambs during pregnancy may cause health complications. You can read more from the NHS website here.
We recommend wearing wellies or walking boots as the farm is muddy in places.
