Lambing weekend at High Weald
Months of planning and hard work meant that we were fully prepared for our annual Lambing Weekend, held this year on 18 and 19 March.
Despite some warning forecasts the weather stayed dry with even a few bright spells which meant that people were happy to come. Over the two days we had 3,000 visitors, which for our little farm is a huge amount. They could see new born lambs, young piglets, goats and a calf. Also day old ducklings and chicks. We even borrowed “George”, a heavy horse as a special attraction. The event was hosted by our young farmers, who were very happy to talk to the crowds about our stock and school; many people commented on how polite and knowledgeable they were.
