Lambing Courses 2018 now open!

The dates are now confirmed for 2018 lambing courses. 

The Howard family have been lambing for 3 generations and our current flock of 1,000 ewes will be in full production come March 2018. We are opening the doors to 8 students on each of 3 dates in March: 12th, 15th and 19th. The courses are based entirely in the lambing sheds and fields, surrounded by real-life examples of what goes on at lambing time. 

2018 will be our 4th year of running courses, and each and every time, students have seen more than one live birth, sometimes over 20 in one day! It's a busy operation, and a magical spectacle. Joanna will lead the courses, a keen lamber and with over 30 years experience. We also have a team of other lambers to call upon across the day, plus of course Stuart who runs the farm and is an all-round sheep farming hero, with many a first-prize to his name.

If you'd like to attend one of the lambing courses for 2018, simply drop Joanna an email at and I'll book you on. The price is £100 per person, 10-4pm. More details are found here. 

Now all we need to do is send positive vibes out to the 25 rams in the fields of Hare Farm who are currently working hard at making the lambing season a prolific one. They each have 40+ ewes to work on!
