On the farm, we host a wide variety of events all through the year, from hosting a Walking Festival to celebrating World Egg Day, and everything in between! Check out "Bettys Blog" for more details about the events that we have coming up. In addition to the events that we hold for the general public, we can now hold bespoke events that are tailored to suit you, get in touch for more information about hosting your event at Betty’s Farm.
More about our animals:
We have 24,000 laying hens here at Betty’s who lay us around 22,000 eggs a day! Our girls live inside the large sheds you can see from the drive with 12,000 in each one. As well as them having full access to the fields outside we also provide toys inside the sheds so that they have plenty to do, as well as laying us their lovely eggs!
We have a small flock of 20 pure breed Jacob ewes as well as a larger flock of 50 Texel Suffolk crosses. The sheep spend some time here at Betty’s as well as some time at our sister farm in Buxton. The ewes are brought here for lambing in the spring though so keep your eyes out for lambs in the fields! All our lambs are reared by us, grass finished and are then used to supply our butchery.
The Small Animals
We have a small selection at Betty’s including rabbits, guinea pig sand ferrets. All these animals have been rehomed from owners who could no longer care for them and so we have given them their forever home.You are welcome to look at these animals (and feed them dandelions which they love!) however we do ask that you do not get them out of the pens as we wouldn't want them lost in the fields! Guinea pig food is also available to purchase from the Farm Shop.
Our Other Animals
Along with all the other animals we also have some goats and pet sheep who love a stroke and will come up to the fence to say hello if you are patient. Small pots of feed are available to purchase in the farm shop.
