There’s so much to see and do on the farm but springtime is especially busy as lambing is in full swing. It really is something to see a lamb being born – just bear in mind that our sheep can’t lamb on demand but with over 300 in the flock, the odds are stacked well in your favour! Note: Some activities, like go-karting, are unavailable during the lambing period as the animals are temporarily occupying this area.
Easter time on the farm is action-packed too with plenty of eggs-tra activities to enjoy. Unleash your inner artist – paint eggs or design an eye-catching Easter bonnet and bring it with you to enter our competitions over the Easter weekend – prizes for the best entries.
You can enjoy the sheepstakes too. At 4pm on each day (weather permitting) see our teddy jockies urge their sheep down the stretch and across the finish line. It’s guaranteed to make you smile. Got a shepherd’s enquiry? Sheep racing also takes place every Sunday and bank holiday too (again, weather permitting).
Lambing Live: 17th – 31st of March
New – You can now come to Newgrange Farm to see our flock of sheep lambing and our herd of cows calving. Spring is the best time on any farm as it is the time for regrowth and baby animals! Please remember that this is a natural process and sheep will lamb in their own time – not on demand, however with a flock of 500 we would hope that you do get to see it all taking place. Please note that not all activities are available during lambing e.g. Go-Karts and Maze as the animals are occupying these areas!
