Visiting new born lambs on the farm

By 16th April, 2019 News Comments Off

Spring was definitely in the air when a party of residents, carers and volunteers visited High House Farm in Matfen last week.

Our Marketing Coordinator, Sally Urwin, showed us around her lambing shed and we met Scabby the sheep, Hatty the ewe and Candy the Shetland pony.

We also had the chance for a cuddle with (newly named) Charlotte and Straker the pet lambs!

Sally will be bringing Charlotte the lamb to Charlotte Straker House in the near future, to meet the residents who couldn’t make it up to the farm.

In the afternoon we all visited the High House Farm Brewery tearooms for a scone and a cup of tea in the sunshine.

As you can see from the pictures, the weather was glorious – long may it continue…
