Woodlands Farm in April

Last year's lambs


Now that the signs of spring are showing, the farm is moving into the lambing period, and have announced the details of the first of their big seasonal events for 2011: Lambing Day. This and further activities have been added to the calendar, and will appear on the front page as they draw closer.


The Woodlands Farm Trust Lambing Day

All are welcome at the Woodlands Farm Trust Lambing Day.

Relax in our café, enjoy the treasure hunt or get involved in craft activities. A great family day out!
