Adopt a Lamb

Would your family like to adopt a lamb? We are accepting a limited number of adoptions in winter, although the lambs won’t be born until spring.

For $65 you can be a (virtual) foster lamb parent

The lamb will be born mid-May through early June. You will:

  • Receive a birth announcement
  • Name the lamb – we’ll use your chosen name from then on
  • Receive a photo of the lamb so you could find yours in a group
  • Learn all we know of its birthing history and reasons for needing to be fostered
  • Be encouraged to come to the farm to help cuddle and bottle-feed during the time that it is here
  • Learn about health care and needs of small lambs

After a week or so, most lambs ‘graduate’ to small farms where they join small free-range flocks.
• You’ll get a report of your lamb’s progress as it learns to become a sheep.

The males will live on pasture in their new homes for the summer then will go to market;  the females will stay with the flock, bearing babies of their own for years to come.

By registering and paying, you will be on a ‘first come first served’ priority list to adopt. If you wish, contact us at info@topsyfarms.com

Please note you do NOT take your lamb home.

People who don’t want to adopt can reserve a time to visit.  Subscribe to the mailing list for Family Events on any page of our website to learn of further Events.

 

Adopt a Lamb

If you adopt a foster lamb, you will help a caring, busy sheep farm nurture the most vulnerable to enable them to survive.
