New Arrivals


Exiting news, twin lambs were born on 26th August. They are both coffee coloured and white so we’ve named them Cino and Latte.

Both lamb mums are the older ewes that came from a different flock , so we are not sure whether to expect more lambs this season.

The plan is for all the lambs to go to our neighbours ( In about 3-5 months) who need a mowing crew.
