Lambing Events


Spring is such a lovely time of year, and there's nothing lovelier than all the adorable lambs at our local farms. It's a great experience for kids to see, meet and sometimes even bottle feed the lambs. 

So here's a rundown of lots of local places you can meet newborn lambs...you might even get to see some being born!

Don't forget a full guide to Easter events in Hitchin and beyond can be found right here.

You can find all the events, by day, in the What's On Guide here (you can jump to a specific date using the handy Calendar tool)

Please do check event/attraction details before travelling, as I can't keep this entire list updated I'm afraid.

Follow my pages on Instagram and Facebook where you'll find all the latest news on the grid and in my stories and highlights.

Lambs at Standalone Farm, Letchworth
As you can see from my picture taken on March 24th, there are lambs at Standalone Farm at the moment. In the past, they've run drop-in bottle feeding sessions on a first come first-served basis (but they've always been great at making sure all the children get a go) and when I asked a member of staff this morning if they planned to do it again, they said hopefully soon, so no set timelines, but I'll keep you posted. The lambs are in a nursery with their mums near the new Highland cows at the moment, so you can see them.
