Volunteering at Lambing Weekends

Would you like to help out at this year's Lambing Weekends?

What's on

Lambing Weekend

24th - 25th March 2018


Opening the gates to our working farm for our annual fundraising festival!

Each year Earth Trust invites you behind the scenes of our working farm. The Lambing Weekends are your opportunity to explore the farmyard and meet some of our Farm Step tenants and their animals – including newborn lambs, piglets and goats! All the farmers will be on hand to introduce you to their animals and tell you more about the life of a shepherd, pig farmer and goat cheesemaker.

But that’s not all! There’ll also be…

  • Bale climbing (bigger and better than ever!)
  • Tractor and trailer rides
  • Children’s activities

Refreshments available from Poem Tree Café and the Emma’s Ewesful Acres BBQ.

By coming to a Lambing Weekend, you not only get a fantastic day out on the Earth Trust Farm, you also help fund the charity caring for this landscape. Each visitor we welcome during our Lambing Festival helps fund our work connecting people with nature and protecting much loved greenspaces. Every penny we raise goes back into providing access and caring for the countryside – thank you for supporting us!

Please be aware: pregnant women and those who are immunocompromised are advised not to enter the lambing shed, please see our Health & Safety Information for more details.

The first Lambing Weekend is on 17th-18th March.
