Families Flock To Meon Valley Farm Shop’s Lambing Days

There were more than 2500 visitors through the gates of a Meon Valley farm to meet its newest bundles of joy.

Visitors flocked to Westlands Farm Shop for its lambing days - an annual four-day springtime event much-loved by families across Hampshire and beyond.

Despite the muddy conditions, guests donned their wellies to greet and cuddle the newest additions to the Westlands flock of Romney sheep. The event provided a unique opportunity for children to witness farming in action and learn about the lambing season first-hand. There was also face-painting, a bouncy castle and a barbecue grill.

Kayleigh Collett of Westlands Farm Shop said she was delighted to see another great turn-out for the lambing days. She added:

“We had so many messages this year asking when our lambing days would be returning - it’s always been a really popular event and I was so pleased to see so many visitors once again this year."

“Being aware of local agriculture and food production is so important for children. We like to use these days as an opportunity for learning and seeing farming first-hand.”

One visitor said:

“We had such a fantastic time at the lambing event and our children are already counting down the days until next year! It was so lovely to see them have such a close encounter with the lambs.”

Westlands Farm Shop is based in the Meon Valley and offers a range of locally sourced groceries and gifts as well as its own butchery.
