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.

I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your day. We have had really bad weather this year for lambing and hope you will be back next year and the weather will be better. Thank you for your comments of your day with us.

Loved this place. Despite the atrocious weather, we saw several lambs being born, bottle fed a lamb and went on a tractor ride onto the Downs. At just £3 an adult and £2 a child, this is a great day out for the whole family....More

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.
