Calving – Live!

New born lambs steal the limelight, as well as our hearts, in spring. But sheep aren’t the only breeds giving birth at the Farm Park at this time of year. Now that Easter is behind us we’re in to the calving season as our pregnant rare and native breed cows take centre stage. We have six expectant mothers this April; two Highland cows, two White Parks, a Belted Galloway and a Gloucester.

The Wonders of Lambing

Is there anything that can beat the sight of a newly-born lamb? Eyes blinking, a first tentative bleat and a woolly tail wagging ten to the dozen. It’s what spring is all about here at the Cotswold Farm Park as our brand new Animal Barn becomes the focus of everyone’s attention with all the excitement and anticipation of a maternity ward. This really is my favourite time of year and I love seeing new, little lives coming in to the world. But what makes lambing time even better is being able to share that joy with hundreds of our visitors. The improvements we’ve made over the winter mean that there’s plenty of room in the Animal Barn an...
