The most wonderful time of the year at a farm is Spring and at Sacrewell it’s no exception.
The bleating of lambs as they skip across the fields, surrounded by new wildlife and flowers is something the team at Sacrewell are privileged to witness every year, and you can too!
Marketing and events executive Megan Allen said: “Spring into Sacrewell marks the start of our daily lamb feeding shows, which are an educational talk about our cade (orphaned) lambs and how they’re raised, while our rangers feed and check them.
“This year we’ll also be introducing visitors to the pets in our Animal Village and allowing some handling of our rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks. And we’re also expecting a litter of piglets during the spring too.”
The flocks of Jacob and rare breed Lincoln Longwool sheep will be in the maternity unit where the ewes and lambs are kept during and after birth and are located in the Shire Horse Stables.
Megan added: “As with all births, we can’t predict to the day when our lambs, piglets or any other animals will be born or hatch, so it’s always a wonderful day when the first lambs arrive.”
Spring into Sacrewell will take place every day until April 24, with lamb feeding shows at 10am, midday, 2pm and 4pm.
