See lambs born live at Overbury Farms
11:49am Thursday 6th March 2014 in News
LITTLE lambs will be born in front of onlookers at next month's Lambing Live Day at Overbury Farms.
The annual event on Sunday, April 13, will see the lambing sheds at the farm in Overbury open to the public during the farm's busy spring season.
The day for the whole family begins at 10am, with tractor and trailer rides taking visitors from the village hall up Bredon Hill to Park Farm throughout the day where they will be able to see lambs being born and feed the new borns.
Jake Freestone, farm manager at Overbury, said: "I am very much looking forward to this year’s Lambing Day Live and to welcoming new visitors onto the farm to show them a little bit about how lambs are produced in the UK.
"We will also be showing them how the countryside is managed for the benefit of wildlife and food production."
Throughout the day there will be also be refreshments including Overbury Lamb casserole, tea, coffee and homemade cakes on offer at the village hall.
Parking is free and so is entry for children while adults pay £5. The proceeds will go towards education projects and Overbury Village hall.
Sadly no pregnant ladies are allowed to visit the lambing sheds due to health and safety.
