Welcoming new life

Spring is an important time of year for the working farm here at Shugborough.

New life in 2019

Throughout spring our farm will be a hive of activity as we welcome new life.

This year we have our very own bull who has fathered several calves due to be born in the spring. Did you know that our farm has received one of the highest standards of welfare for our animals? We manage our cattle with their best interests at heart. They are pasture fed and live their lives out in the parkland, grazing productively to aid in the conservation of our Parkland. 

In the spring we hope to welcome lots of calves

This time of year will also see the arrival of our bouncing southdown lambs.  Our farm team have all hands on deck as we welcome some bouncing bundles of joy. You may be lucky and see a beautiful lamb born right in front of your eyes.

It is thanks to your continued support through your memberships and visits that we can do this important work on our farm. We strive to make our estate as sustainable as possible, so make sure you check in on our tea-rooms to see Shugborough's very own produce, such as lamb and leeks, for sale.
