Shearing Farm Tour Meatup
July 7, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
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
