Lambing Live: Half Term 10th – 18th February
Lambing Live is back at Churchfields Farm and we just know ‘EWE’ are going to have a Baaa-rilliant day at our Farming and Lambing Live Festival this February half term.
Your day out includes our Fun Farm where you will see the friendly animals which include; donkeys, pigs, cows, goats and of course our pregnant sheep! Plus enjoy crafts and unlimited play on the adventure playground, go-karts, fairy trail, pedal tractors & air bouncers (weather permitting)!
In our UNDERCOVER maternity barn, you will see our pregnant sheep and their newborn lambs and will have a strong chance of witnessing a live birth! We’re expecting around 40 new arrivals during half term so it’s going to be pretty busy! Learn about lambing too from our team who are watching over the maternity barn 24/7.
Choose your arrival time and then stay as long as you like until we close at 5 pm
- The animal areas are open 11am – 4pm
- Dogs are not allowed in the animal areas
Pregnancy and lambing: Please note it is not recommended that pregnant women visit lambing, as there is a small risk of miscarriage. Pregnant women who come into close contact with sheep during lambing may risk their own health and that of their unborn child, from infections that can occur in some ewes. These include chlamydiosis (enzootic abortion of ewes – EAE), toxoplasmosis and listeriosis, although the number of reports of these infections and human miscarriages resulting from contact with sheep are extremely small, it is important that pregnant women are aware of the potential risks. If you do visit, we recommend not visiting the lambing area.
