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!
It’s time to start thinking about those tasty treats and the Christmas Dinner!
With that in mind, here are two starting points for you to help you get ahead of the game!
Bored at Half Term? Come down to Betty’s Farm just off the A38 for half term Farm Fun. Collect eggs to take home, have a behind the scenes tour of the farm and meet our animals. Join us Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of half term at 11am by our chicken.
Love eggs? Come to Betty’s Farm on Saturday October 14th to celebrate World Egg Day. Join us from 10am-3pm for stalls, pony rides, bouncy castle, face painting, activities, farm tours and MORE to entertain you and all the family. Our Farm Shop, Butchery and Cafe will be open as normal, so pop in and see us.
