Overview

March - Mid April we have 800 ewes lambing and 80 Cows calving so come and see a real working farm and take the tractor ride to the top of the downs to see the ewes and lambs out in the fields. Through the summer we have trips around the farm lasting over 1 hour to see the animals, crops and conservation areas.

Entrance fee is £2 per adult and £1 per child, a traditional working farm, lots of lambing in the spring and if your lucky you may even see a calf or two be born

Been here a few times and it's a small but lovely little farm. Nice for a short trip. The tractor ride is always a fun trip up the fields to see the Sussex Downs and local sites.

Our money was taken and only then were we told that it was a slow day and unlikely that we would see any 'late night lambing'. We were assured however, that two calves had been born the previous evening. We then wandered around barns looking...More

My cynical and reluctant pre-teen boys couldn't help but be moved by the sight of a new born calf attempting to stand on wobbly legs. Plus they said the lambs were very soft! We stayed a couple of hours and loved the bumpy tractor ride....More
