FOYF Spring Celebration 2018

The weather was very kind to us and our almost 400 visitors, with only a light shower of rain at the end of the night. We were also very lucky with a number of lambs being born on the afternoon which made for a spectacular sight for many of the families who came along.

Thank you to everyone who assisted with this special event; volunteers, students and staff. Those who cooked the barbie, sold drinks, raffle tickets, cakes, stood at the registration desk or took farms tours, the afternoon was truly a wonderful success and your efforts were greatly appreciated.

Our Young Farmers also made a tremendous effort on Friday, taking registrations, selling drinks and cakes, taking families on farm tours and showing what makes the Tintern Farm so special.
