A farm shop in the Meon Valley is set to welcome families from across the region for the return of its spring lambing event. 

Westlands Farm Shop in Shedfield is hosting its popular lambing event after two years of it not going ahead.

Families from across Hampshire are welcome to meet the new-born lambs and learn about Westlands Farm in the spring sunshine. 

The lambing event will take place during the Easter school holidays between April 1-4, starting from 10am to 4pm. 

Westlands Farm Shop will be hosting a barbecue with meat sourced from the local butchers, and there will be plenty of old-school games for visitors to get involved in, such as welly-wanging, and giant tic tac toe.

There will also be a bouncy castle at the venue. The team at Westlands Farm has been busy looking after the ewes ahead of the birth of the new arrivals which includes vaccinating the flock to make sure the lambs are protected from diseases that can be fatal, such as tetanus disease. 

Shop owner Kayleigh Collett said: “We are really excited to welcome families and visitors from across Hampshire to come and say hello to the lambs. 

“We haven’t been able to host our annual lambing event since before the pandemic and we are really looking forward to it. We know many of our customers have really missed this spring event. 

“There will be lots of different things for people to enjoy and we are really looking forward to a community and family-focused event. Everyone is welcome.” 

For health and safety reasons, it has been advised that pregnant women do not attend this event.
