McKerchar Lamb invites all families with younger children to come and play with our orphaned lambs. We believe that our lambs thrive when they spend time with people. So if you're passing through Central Otago, stop in for a fantastic rest stop for the kids!
Please note that our premium quality lamb products sold direct to the public are not orphaned lambs.
In 2012, David set up a purpose-built greenhouse where orphaned lambs are kept warm and fed a whey-based milk product. The greenhouse is home to about 250 lambs which would have otherwise not survived.
David still enjoys to foster a smaller number of lambs on to foster mums, but most are cared for in the greenhouse using the automatic feeders.
