Earth Trust Friends enjoy exclusive opportunity in the lambing shed

On Saturday 6th April, we welcomed members of the Earth Trust Friends scheme for an exclusive event: Meet the Shepherd.

Taking a walk down to the lambing sheds on the Earth Trust Farm to meet our Shepherd Emma, the Friends were greeted by the sound of a flock of ewes ready for their breakfast!

The Earth Trust Friends spent a wonderful morning in the farmyard talking with Emma and asking questions, and enjoying the sight of playful newborn lambs. They were then given the opportunity to bottle feed some of the lambs that are being hand-reared.

“My two grandsons, aged 6 and 4, and I really loved it, and it was perfect being in such a small group…it was an ideal opportunity to get up close and personal with the lambs and ewes,” said one of our Friends.

Earth Trust was delighted to be able to give our Friends this behind-the-scenes access and demonstrate just what an impact their support has for the Earth Trust Farm.

Becoming an Earth Trust Friend is a fantastic way to support our work championing accessible green spaces. To show our gratitude we offer a range of behind-the-scenes benefits, such as exclusive events like Meet the Shepherd, and a biannual newsletter. You can find out more about becoming a friend here.
