High hopes for this lovely girl!

This is one of those moments in lambing in which you give a sigh of relief.

This gorgeous Border Leicester ewe lamb was up on its feet and had found the ewes vital colostrum within 20 minutes of being born.

We're so pleased to welcome back "Manorfields Alistair", who's been out on our Pedigree Pig Conservation Project!

"Jermey" is an Oxford Sandy and Black boar from the Alistair bloodline. He's one of eight breeding boars that we have at Tom's Farm, these boys travel around the country doing their best as ambassadors to save the #oxfordsandyandblackpigs from decline.

A wonderful example of the breed, bred by Mr and Mrs Colson of the Manorfields herd.

I recently visited Nightingale Community Academy, a truly remarkable school for boys with social, emotional and mental health needs. Not only are the teachers and support staff dedicated, the students welcoming, and the catering team passionate - they also have a working farm! Tom's Farm is a truly special place. From taking care of the animals to competing in national young farmer competitions, students here are provided with the very best learning opportunities. Looking forward to returning to see everyone soon - especially the adorable animals.
What a lovely article about Tom's Farm in last Friday's Farmers' Guardian!
Today we welcomed our two new Oxford Sandy and Black breeding girls from Tom's Farm - an educational farm based within Nightingale Community Academy. We're excited for the future of these two girls, #OxfordSandyandBlack pigs are deemed 'At Risk' by Rare Breeds Survival Trust so we're hoping to boost the population of this breed. 🐽 Head to our Instagram story where we are holding a poll to choose these girls names!

I am absolutely loving your page! Can I please ask how much land do you have on your school farm? X
Evening everybody! We've just started our small flock of pedigree Border Leicesters on our school/city farm in London. The farm is set up as a therapy resource for young people diagnosed with social,emotional and mental health needs however, we also offer accredited qualifications in animal care and run outreach projects all over London teaching children and adults about farm to fork education. These lambs are then halter broken and used as education tools at our pop up farm to fork days ... We're passionate about pedigree native breeds and Borders have found a welcome home with us at Tom's Farm We put a lot of orphan lambs out to other school farms all over the country. Currently we have lots of lovely Southdown breeders who donate us ewe lambs eligible for registration and the occasional whether to help educate the next generation. I was just putting a plea out there to see if there was and BL breeders who'd be keen to get involved with this fantastic project. We are part of registered charity and any lambs are a fantastic help ... any money raised goes straight back into the project.
