We are very excited to announce that Wild Alba Tours has teamed up with The Haugh Farm to offer lambing tours this Spring! Tours start on the 25th of March and will run for 3 – 4weeks.
Come and join us on a tour of The Haugh Farm. You will be warmly welcomed by one of the lambing team who will explain everything you need to know about farm life and lambing time. You will get to see all aspects of lambing from feeding and watering the animals to monitoring the pregnant ewes. This experience is great for kids as they can get involved and a family favourite is helping to feed lambs. Although active participation is encouraged it’s not essential!
Mud is guaranteed so don’t forget your wellies, waterproofs and warm clothes. Keep in mind that because the sheep are sensitive to noise and disturbance it’s important that we are able to keep fairly quiet whilst inside the lambing shed. Therefore all children must be accompanied by an adult and we would recommend that children are over 6 years of age to fully appreciate the excitement of lambing.
One hour tours cost from £10 per person. A family ticket is available for £30 for 2 adults and 2 children. Let us know if you have more children and we will give you a revised price!
Please note that due to the risk of abortion from zoonotic diseases, pregnant ladies must not attend.
For the full lambing experience, why not join us for half a day? Here you will get a real hands-on experience. Help us move new mums out into the field, marking lambs and maybe even help lamb a sheep (not compulsory!). Book a half day tour now!
Booking for the tours is essential as there is limited space on the tours.
