Rare Breeds Live – Lambing Special

Today, (Friday 19 February 2021), Cholderton Charlie’s Farm ran a NEW interactive online farm event.

While they remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, they ran a “Rare Breeds Live – Lambing Special” It involved a virtual trip with some of the Farm Team, where we virtually met the rare breed ewes, who are due to give birth to their lambs in the next couple of weeks and we found out what happens before, during and after delivery.

The live covered

  • Details of the lambing sheep, the meeting of the ewes and the ram
  • Information on what lambing time typically looks like for the farming staff at Cholderton Charlies
  • And details of important issues that might arise during the lambing season, including prior to delivery and follow up for the lambs and their mothers.

They posted on their Facebook page after the event , “A HUGE thank you to every single one of you who joined us in today’s first ever Facebook “Rare Breeds Live – Lambing Special”. We loved having you all and we can’t wait for the next one! Let us know what you’d like to see from us and any feedback you might have so we can make sure we give you what you want to see; tips on topics, timings and anything else you might like to tell us! Few sneak peak photos from this mornings 50 minute sessions. We crammed so much in and got really interactive. It actually felt like we were a little bit open again.”
