Lambs are one of the signs of spring we all like to see frolicking in the fields. Their arrival is timed perfectly to correspond with the new seasons grass growth. This year we are really lucky to be following the lambing journey at Brucefield Farm in Fife.
Throughout April there will be updates and information on lambing, how it works and all the highs and lows from the lambing sheds.
Angela Mill RHET Fife Project Assistant said ‘Lambing time is hectic but it’s one of the highlights in our farming calendar. The sheep year revolves around lambing time and I’m excited to be able share some of what happens on our family farm. Hopefully we will be able to highlight how much hard work and planning is involved throughout the year, and in the build-up to lambing time, with the end result being lots of healthy, happy lambs!
Following on from this Carole Brunton RHET Fife Project Coordinator added, ‘We are very excited to invite you into the lambing shed during the month of April, and hope you enjoy seeing the care and attention given by the Mill family to make sure every lamb has a good start”.
We can all support local producers and help ensure sustainable food supplies by looking for the Scotch lamb logo. We all have a part to play in checking the origin of the food we eat.
The lambing diaries will be posted on the RHET social media pages.
