Christmas 2018!

No Comments

As the days are becoming shorter and the weather gets colder out thoughts are turning to Christmas! We’ve got an exciting December here at Betty’s Farm with our ‘Meet the Christmas Elves and Santa’ each Saturday in the run up to Christmas. This experience involves being met by Santa’s elves and taken into the farmhouse to begin the Christmas preparations, before a visit from the big man himself! We still have space on some sessions, just £10 per child including a gift from Santa – please book in at the farm shop or telephone 01283 703582.

Our thoughts are also turning to Christmas lunch! For a stress free Christmas dinner download our Christmas order form to pre-order your turkey and meat and use our  Christmas Shopping List for all the trimmings!

October was a very busy month on the farm…..

Our ram, Barney, went in with our ewes for breeding so we’re now looking forward to welcoming our lambs onto the farm from March 16th 2018! We also passed our Lion Code certification so we are continuing to be registered with the scheme. The clocks went back ensuring a difficult night shutting the chickens up as they were determined to stay up late and play outside despite it being pitch black!
