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.
More about the animals:
We have 24000 laying hens here at Bettys who lay us around 22000 eggs a day! Our girls live inside the large sheds you can see from the drive with 12000 in each one. We provide the hens with toys inside the sheds as well as them having full access to the fields outside so 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 Bettys as well as some time at our sister farm up in Buxton. The ewes are bought 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 Bettys including rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and chinchillas. All these animals are rescues whose owners could no longer care for them and so we have given them their forever home here. This area also has a pen of chickens to look at and feed. 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!
The 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.
