Lambing Time on the Farm

 Lambing Time at Pry House Farm

Lambing is a busy time on the farm.  Hundreds of lambs are born between mid April and the end of May.  Some of our sheep have their lambs in the buildings in the yard but many more have them in the fields surrounding the farmhouse and the Shepherd's Hut

Every year brings its problems. Spring 2021 has been particularly cold.  Hard frosts every night during April and snow at the beginning of May has held back any new spring grass. Our sheep are hungry and now more than ever, when they are rearing lambs, they need plenty of feed.

The arrival of the the quad bike & trailer with hay for the feeder soon attracts a crowd.

But its the rattle of sugar beet in a bag that has the sheep running from every direction.

This and all the lambing antics of the day is in full view of the farmhouse and Shepherd's Hut providing endless hours of entertainment.
