Elms Farm consists of arable fields and pasture, on which we stock 500 breeding ewes. We also have very friendly sheep dogs - Blue and her daughter Sky, who loves to play with anyone. A new addition to the family is our young collie, Willow.
If you visit us during spring time you will more than likely find us in the middle of the lambing season. We endeavour to allow the sheep to give birth as naturally as possible but occasionally they need a helping hand so you will quite often find that we have a shed converted to a maternity unit for about six weeks of the year. You are welcome to look on and see what it is all about but be warned – it can get very messy!!!.
The sheep shearing usually takes place in June. This is when we have a few extra members of the household as the New Zealand shearers settle in to the district for about three months. If we are not shearing we can usually find out where they are if you would like to see how it is done.
Visitors are welcome. We can also offer farm tours for up to 4 people and subject to availability. This can be from
1/2 hour to 2 hours depending on how much you want to see . Please ask for futher information and costs.
You will find our farmhouse accommodation a delightful place to stay and an ideal centre for touring the Cotswolds.
