Camping

We are slowly coming towards the end of our lambing season now, we have had around 6,000 lambs born since April and all has gone smoothly! With the bank holiday very nearly here and the school holidays, the campsite is ready for action. We do not take bookings here, we have a very much relaxed approached, simply turn up and pitch up! Someone will come round to see you to take payment and offer firewood for sale but otherwise you can simply relax and enjoy your wonderful surroundings.

Lambing 2017

We are nearing the end of our April lambing with just a few to go now until we start it all again with our May lambers who should start producing their lambs from 5th May onwards. Lambing is such an intrinsic part of Steeple Leaze Farm with an estimated 6,000 lambs expected for this year! So far we have had very positive results and hope this continues for next month too.


Don't forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram, all at Steeple Leaze Farm!

Coming Home!



So the last few weeks here at the farm have been busy ones moving a lot of our pregnant sheep back towards the farm ready for lambing in April. In this photo there are 440 sheep waiting patiently to be loaded up to travel to pastures new. As well as this there is general maintenance of the farm and machinery as well as scanning the sheep to see how many lambs they have.

2017


This is what the scenes have been like on the farm this week; foggy, frosty and frightfully cold. Despite the elements farm life still carries on with feeding, checking and moving the animals as well as the general maintenance and upkeep of our farm machinery.

New Life

The photo of this heifer calf was taken just 10 minutes after she was born.  We had to assist her mother as she was a first time calver and baby was struggling to come out. Mother and baby doing well.
