lambs in the pasture

We have pastures filled with bouncing little lambs, so come get your fill of lamb cuteness on Sunday, October 27th, from 1:00-5:00, when we’ll be open to the public with free self-guided tours, hay wagon rides, and lamb petting!

Aren’t they cute? We have adorable spotted lambs this year. Each one is different and some are really fancy!

These babies are full of joy and love having races, where they just run and run and run for the joy of it. Actually, that’s the way prey animal babies strengthen their muscles to be able to keep up with flocks in the wild when escaping predators. They really can’t resist the primal urge to leap and spin and race each other, much to our entertainment!

We have a bottle baby lamb this year, and if you’re here at 1:30, you can help feed him his bottle!

Farmer Bob will have the hay wagon hooked up to his tractor for ongoing rides throughout the afternoon.

Our farm store will be open. We have lots of lamb meat in stock, honey, eggs, our honey and beeswax soap, and crafty items for sale. Many of our soaps also contain goat milk and shea butter, botanicals and other natural colorants, minerals, and fragrances!

Cookie will be here to greet everyone. Don’t forget to give her a belly rub!

But the babies are the miracles on the farm right now!

The weatherman is telling us that there might be lingering rain early in the afternoon on Sunday, but when it clears off later in the afternoon, it should be as pretty as this picture of the blue sky over Fox Trot Farm just a couple days ago.

We’re always keeping a weather eye, so, if it is rainy in the afternoon, just wait till it clears out to come by. You can always call or text me before you come, too. 803-804-3541 is our farm number. If you haven’t been here before, our farm address is 5066 Rowell RD, Lancaster, SC. We’re just about 15 miles from all surrounding towns: Lancaster, Monroe, Waxhaw, Pageland, Heath Springs, and a little farther from Indian Land, Indian Trail, Matthews, and Charlotte. 

Note: We are certified by the state of South Carolina to sell our meat, honey & eggs to the public. We use a certified humane and USDA inspected processing facility for our meat and are inspected annually here on the farm by the USDA. Our agri-tourism farm falls under the umbrella of the SC Agri-tourism Association liability act and we have all appropriate signage and safety practices. For our visitors’ comfort and health, we have public sanitary facilities and a hand washing station. For private tours for groups of 10 or more, please contact us to make a reservation. We are an educational, working agri-tourism farm, raising meat sheep, chickens for eggs, bees for honey, dairy goats, a pig, rabbits, a jack ass, herding & guardian dogs, and enjoy sharing the farming life with the public.

EIEIO!
Debbie
