Romney Marsh Wools will be opening their farm gates on Sunday 5th April 2020 for their third annual open day.
The family have been farming on the Romney Marsh for at least 6 generations and today have a flock of 1000 Romney ewes as well as a small flock of Merinos. The fleeces from both are used to create Romney Marsh Wools’ range of products.
Lambing takes place from mid-February and there will be the opportunity to meet the lambs (and perhaps see some being born!) as well as find out more about the sheep and life on the farm. There will be Kentish crafts, food & drink available on the day from some specially selected producers plus activities for children of all ages, including the chance to have your photo taken in a tractor and face painting.
There will also be the chance to take a look at the Romney Marsh Shepherds Huts, situated on the farm and offering stays in the heart of the beautiful Romney Marsh.
The open day will run from 11am – 3pm on Sunday 5th April 2020 at Rushfield, Giggers Green Road, Aldington, Kent TN25 7BT. Admission is free of charge. (Please note that Romney Marsh Wools is not open to visitors on other dates unless by prior arrangement).
Please note, no dogs will be allowed on site (except guide/assistance dogs) due to livestock.
