The Good Day Out

A ‘no holds barred’ day in the life of an organic sheep farmer in the beautiful Brecon Beacons at lambing time. We cannot promise you will witness a lambing but you will be able to help with a range of daily tasks: feeding lambs, bedding down, marking, moving and collecting eggs. You will be free to ask as many questions as you wish and Paul & Liz will be happy to talk about organic farming and their alternative energy initiatives. A tasty homemade lunch is included and then you will be free to walk around the farm to enjoy the stunning views.
Undated vouchers can be bought and then redeemed by the recipients, or please look out for 2018 dates.

Need to Know

Times may vary depending upon weather. NO PREGNANT WOMEN (health reasons), please bring wellies and clothes that can get dirty or overalls. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please note we have three very friendly dogs. Your own dogs sadly not welcome for this experience due to possible stress levels for the sheep. The experience is conducted with very small groups so early booking is advisable.

Reviews

Julia We had a fantastic day, thank you. There would have been nothing that we would have wanted changing at all. Liz, Paul and Nicola were fantastic hosts and it was great to get to know them and understand how the farm works. It really felt like we were their guests and we felt so comfortable asking any questions. Initially we thought 'uh oh this is an activity for families' as another lady was on the tour with her two young children but it really was the best activity for any age. Thank you for organising this for us. Rhiannon

As town dwellers, my fiancé and I wanted a visit that took in the joys of the country, whilst also giving us a taste of farming life. The time we spent during the lambing day was excellent. It was our first proper interaction with sheep of any age and we were lucky to be given the opportunity to really immerse ourselves in what it is like to be a farmer during the lambing period. Of all the things we were given the opportunity to do, feeding the baby lambs was the highlight. Over and above the things listed in the lambing event was the friendly and accommodating nature of our hosts. They were always helpful and gave answers to all of our questions, whilst showing us many of the animals that they rear on their farm. If you have the opportunity to visit during the lambing season we would both certainly recommend it! Many thanks for a wonderful time.

I would just like to say what an amazing experience I have had today! I really can't express how much I enjoyed all that you had to offer. Nicola was fabulous and a really great host! Her dad was great and a big thank you to him for allowing me to deliver one of the baby lambs! This I will never, ever forget. Feeding the lambs, holding them and herding them from one field to another was truly an experience. This is something that will stay with me. Thank you too for the lunch. ( we popped into the bakers on the way home and bought a cob, Chelsey buns not ready though). You have such a beautiful farm and I hope I can visit again someday. Good luck to Nicola in her teaching career!. Pauline. xx
