Flat Caps & Wellies with The Lamb Van

Event Information

An experience suitable for the whole family on the Dempster’s sheep farm just outside Ballymoney.

Visitors can interact with the sheep and lambs, be educated about daily life on a sheep farm and leave with a full belly of local produce after trying to pen a sheep with only a crook and feeding some of the newborn lambs by bottle. 

Meet Farmer Al and his trusted sheepdog and watch them work as a team rounding up the sheep.  There will be awards and photo opportunities.

Event Organiser

Taste Causeway is an accredited Slow Food destination, one of only a handful of destinations in Ireland to be awarded the accolade by the global Slow Food Movement. To launch and celebrate this prestigious award Taste Causeway are running a programme of events, dining experiences, tours and special menus.   Slow Food stands for Good, Clean and Fair food.  Slow Food was initially founded by a group of activists in Italy during the 1980s with the aim of defending regional traditions, good food, gastronomic pleasure and a slow pace of life. Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people, in over 150 countries that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to the community and the environment.   Slow Food aims to reinvigorate people’s interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us. Recognising the importance of our local food traditions and the years of accrued knowledge and culture that accompanies this, Slow Food promotes true enjoyment of good food, and food production systems that provide good, clean and fair food for everyone.
