Top Three Lambing Tours
Our sheep lamb outside in an inaccessible field so unfortunately we can’t do lambing tours. However, we are part of an amazing group of farmers, many of which do. Go Rural is a group of over 200 agritourism businesses who actively welcome the public onto their farms. From staying in a pod or luxury accommodation, farm shops, cafes or tours all these businesses are real working farms that would love you to come and visit. They have compiled a blog of farms throughout Scotland who are doing lambing tours this year.
Our Top Three
We are being asked daily for recommendations of farms who are doing lambing tours. Therefore we decided to compile a list of farms who are doing tours relatively close to us. Here are our top three:
Wellsgreen are one of the newest agritourism businesses we know and they are full of enthusiasm with great events and farm visits. They are based between Kirkcaldy and Leven on the Standing Stane Road (A915) at Wellsgreen Driving Range. They have sheep, goats, alpacas and cattle and do farm walks and visits. Their lambing tours start later in April so be sure to book.
Logie Farm has unrivalled views over the River Tay and offers a great experience for adults and children. Meet the farmer and experience what lambing on a real working farm looks like. Their first lot of lambing sessions are over however I’ve heard from the owners that they are about to release some more dates due to demand. Make sure you like their facebook page to keep up with new dates.
Lindores Lambing with Lunch is the ultimate lambing tour. Spend time with the Black family on their beautiful farm in North East Fife. Meet their animals and see what life on a farm during lambing is like. Afterwards they will take you up to the top of their hill in a land drover and drop you at their exclusive hide for a specially prepared lunch overlooking the sheep and lambs with unrivaled views of the Tay. This is one that adults will also enjoy!
There are many more farms doing tours so keep an eye out on the Go Rural website to see what’s going on and when. Farms are very seasonal so it’s changing all the time. In our area alone there are lots of other farms doing tours but many of them have finished their lambing tours already.
One of the best experiences you will have this spring! The perfect insight into a working farm with the awesome Morris Family - get involved at Logie Farm, Newburgh.
