Shearing Farm Tour Meatup

July 7 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

What’s Happening?

At Swillington we want you to experience the story behind your food by visiting the farm, seeing the animals and meeting the people that produce your food.

We’re opening up so you can see from field to fork the farming, butchering and growing that takes place at Swillington. Get a behind the scenes view of of our farm.

Meet at the Farm Shop

There is no charge and no need to book.

1.30 pm – 3.30pm  Shearing Demonstration

The Texel cross ewes have now been sheared, but you can come and see the Hebrideans which are sheared later as the wool doesn’t rise as early as the others making shearing more difficult. Come and watch our shearer Jed do  battle with the little sheep from 1.30pm until he finishes!

The butchery and shop is also open as normal:
Friday – 10am – 6pm
Saturday – 9.30am – 3.30pm
