3 Day Experience (4 night accommodation) only £690
We will run a Lambing Experience when we have enough interest so register your interest now by emailing Lambing Experience.
We have always been adamant that we produce the very best meat here at Kirkwood, but now is your chance to see for yourself how it’s done!
Our Lambing Experience will give participants the opportunity to learn so many diverse skills and find out what really goes on over our busiest time of the year. You will experience first hand lambs being born in our fields, which medicines/veterinary techniques we use & how to look after orphan lambs. (Those who are squeamish please be warned, blood and death are sadly inevitable during lambing).
There may be a shearing demonstration indoors but mostly our lambing takes place outside so be prepared with wellies and waterproofs.
You will get the chance to purchase some of our hogget (lamb over 1 year old) when you are here.
Based at Kirkwood, your accommodation will be in one of our holiday cottages situated in the Stables Courtyard. You will have your own bedroom but may share a cottage with a fellow student. All meals (breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal) are included in the price, as is the accommodation, guidance and tuition. The price for all this is just £690.
