Lambing days help educate the public

A Lincolnshire farm is offering hands-on Lambing Experience Days to educate visitors about where their food comes from.

Mill Farm is a working farm with accommodation near Barkston, Grantham. Owner Steve Elnor said he was keen to provide some educational experiences for guests who are staying in one of his wigwam cabins. The lambing experience days take place this month and next.

Mr Elnor said: “There has been a lot of negative press around British farming so far this year, so what better way to dispel the lies than to show people how real farms work and offer a hands-on experience?

“They’ll spend a few hours in the morning in the lambing sheds with me where I’ll talk them through how we feed, lamb and raise the sheep and they’ll hopefully, but we can’t promise it, see some lambs being born.”

It is the first time he has invited the public into his lambing sheds and he is hoping it will be an experience they remember for a long time. Visitors will have the opportunity to feed the sheep, help move them and bottle-feed lambs.

Mr Elnor added: “British farmers want nothing more than to show people just how well they care for their animals, what goes into raising them for food and why it is so important to buy British and support local.

“Here in Lincolnshire we are at the heart of rural food production. I hope that visitors will go away having had a once in a lifetime experience witnessing lambs being born but also with a changed attitude towards British farming.”
