Farm is a working sheep farm, and there are usually sheep and
lambs around in the summer months.
is the man who is the real farmer, and nowadays he looks after
the farm for us. He usually lambs his ewes in April at his farm
up on Alport Heights, but he will often brings some ewes and
lambs down to us later on. They will stay here while the mums
feed the lambs and they grow. Then, about August time, they
are weaned and that leads to a very noisy couple of days as
they shout for each other.
mums will usually then stay here, grazing and generally getting
back into shape before they meet up with the tups (rams) again
in early November.
