During Springtime, a very special event takes place here at Humble Bee Farm.
And as a VIP, you will get a front row seat with Farmer Percy’s Lambing Experience.
What to Wear
As you will be in the lambing barn itself, please wear appropriate clothing including wellies, warm clothing, waterproof coats and warm hats (don’t forget, we sell our very own Humble Bee bobble hats in our shop/reception).
What Happens Next
At your allotted time, make your way across our bustling farmyard to our special lambing barn.
See the ewes and any new-borns in their cosy environment.
Can you spot any sheep about to give birth?
Farmer Percy will give a full rundown of what’s happened overnight, and whether he’s had any sleep … or not!
As lambing is one of our busiest times of year, as a VIP you could be asked to help one of our ewes deliver her young … it is a rare and magical opportunity!
Then it will be time to feed the hungry ewes, who need lots of energy at this time of year.
We ask ALL VIPs to follow the lambing hygiene code: wash hand thoroughly and be sure to swill off footwear (we have an outdoor tap available).
Do not eat or drink in the lambing barn.
What Happens Afterwards
Your VIP lambing experience does not stop here.
Farmer Percy will take a well-earned break and will head over to The Hive to grab a hot drink.
Of course, you can do the same (fresh coffee, tea and warming hot chocolate available to purchase along with hot food and sweet treats).
In this cosy place Farmer Percy will then hold your very own Q&A sessions, just for VIPs.
He will also talk about the Farmyard Gang … Tilly, our Shetland pony, our alpacas, goats, rabbits, budgies, guineapigs and of course our friendly chucks!
Also there’ll be a chance to get your lambing souvenirs in our shop/reception, too!
How Long Does It Last?
This special experience lasts 2 hours and we cap the group numbers to 8 people per sessions, including children.
How Much Does it Cost?
Just £30 per person, including children.
Please note those who are or think they might be pregnant are advised not to attend.
No dogs either as they can stress the ewes and lambs.
