Over four thousand visitors pitched up at our baa-rilliant lambing event after two years of it not going ahead.
Families from across Hampshire flocked to the farm to meet our newest bundles of joy.
Visitors enjoyed a family-friendly day cuddling the lambs while learning about our flock of Romney sheep. Some of the visitors were even lucky enough to watch lambs being born.
The much-loved event returned after two years following the COVID pandemic yet still remained a hugely popular family event among the local community.
Kayleigh Collet of Westlands Farm Shop said that having a strong presence in the local community is a big part of the farm shop’s ethos.
Kayleigh added: “Loads of our customers were excited to see our lambing event return, we really managed to drum up a lot of excitement beforehand.
“During the lambing days we were able to teach children and visitors about farming and the lambing season. It’s really important that younger generations learn about agriculture and farm life. The event was an opportunity for them to see farming in action.”
One visitor said: “My children had a fantastic time. I loved seeing the wonder on their faces when the lamb was placed in their arms. We are looking forward to taking them again next year. The day was fantastic, so much to see and learn about.”
There were also activities on offer for visitors, including face-painting, a bouncy castle and a barbecue grill.
