Butser Ancient Farm welcome rare baby lambs for spring!

Butser Ancient farm in Chalton have welcomed 18 rare-breed baby lambs to the farm, born just in time for Easter and Spring-time fun!

It’s the perfect time to visit Butser and see the turning of the seasons, warmer days and blossoming of new life as we welcome spring.  

The farm is now open for visits seven days a week 10am to 5pm with lots of activities planned over the Easter holidays.

Visit the sheep at Butser, which are a rare Iron Age breed called Manx Loaghtan. Originally from the Isle of Man, they have distinctive mousy brown colouring when fully grown and a striking horned appearance – with up to 6 horns each!

Manx Loaghtan are designated as ‘at risk’ by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust; There are fewer than 1,500 registered breeding females in the UK. With all the new arrivals at Butser, the team are delighted to be helping this rare breed animal to thrive and grow.

For a chance to celebrate the turning of the seasons why not join the farm for their annual Beltain Festival on the 5th May to enjoy local ales, food and entertainment before the burning of the great Wickerman?
