Book your time to ensure you have enough time and space for your family to enjoy.
Shearing this year takes place April 21st and 22nd, 2018 upstairs in our barn. No fee is requested but you must book a time to ensure viewing pleasure and safety.
Nurture Lambs during our lambing season, May 13 through June 2nd this year. We occasionally ‘rescue’ lambs who need special care – often the smallest of triplets or quads. They are bottle fed and cuddled and the public is invited to participate, but must reserve a time. The fee is $15/family or carload for a 25 minute time period. More time may be available on weekdays. Time holding a young lamb can be deeply comforting. Please car pool at the ferry to save money, space on the boat, and the environment.
Adopt a foster lamb. This is a way for individuals, families or school classes to relate to an individual animal, to name it, and to visit as often as they wish while the lamb is on the farm. This supports the farm’s efforts to take care of its most vulnerable animals. The information about adopting a lamb is available here.
Most of the young lambs ‘graduate’ to small farms where they will be cared for and raised on pasture.
Two of the lambs will stay at Topsy Farms for the summer. Visitors come to the Wool Shed to discover our wool product treasures. While here, they are welcome to walk the lambs on a leash, give them a bottle or hand feed them.
