Jane Brand of East Fortune Farm tells us that life on the farm continues to be very busy as they head towards Christmas.
Our Hampshire Down flock start lambing mid December so it’s a hectic time for us as we expect 70 new lambs over Christmas this year. Throughout the lambing period we will be screening live from the lambing shed – a screen will be available in Brand’s Larder where you might catch a glimpse of a live lambing during your visit!
We’re also giving one family a chance to spend an afternoon with us during the lambing season. You will be welcomed with hot chocolate and shortbread and we will take you down to the lambing shed where you can get in on the action! You will bottle feed some lambs, help with their bedding and assist Grant with some other lambing shed duties.

LEARN WITH THE BRAND FAMILY
As a family of farmers we love sharing our stories and helping educate the next generation of farmers. So, in the spirit of Christmas we’re offering a young agricultural or veterinary student the opportunity to spend a full day with Grant and Grandpa Brand on East Fortune Farm. They’ll spend the day working with the Hampshire Down sheep and the Saddleback pigs.
