Spring brings new life to Tom’s Farm

By Fiona Wilkins - March 28th, 2024 | Posted in Article

Students have been eagerly tracking the arrival of new life this spring at Tom’s Farm at NCA. They have been helping look after the ewes and their baby lambs as they are born in the Lambing Live marquee on the farm.

They have also enjoyed seeing the piglets and baby goats as they are looked after by their mums in the stables. The students have helped with scanning the mums, mucking out and keeping the animals fed and watered. They have also been enjoying plenty of therapeutic cuddles with the baby animals when mum allows!

We are also looking forward to welcoming pupils from other local schools after the Easter holidays to the Lambing Live marquee.
