THE lambing sheds at Overbury Farms will be open to visitors on Sunday (April 14) for the opportunity to see the spring crop coming into the world.

“Lambing Live is always a popular event and we hope lots of people will turn up again to share with us,” said Jake Freestone, farm manager at Overbury.

The lambing sheds are at Park Farm, near the top of Bredon Hill, and tractor and trailer rides will leave Overbury Village Hall from 10am to 3pm, with the last returning at 4pm.

The cost is £5. As well as the sheep and lambs at Park Farm, the estate gamekeepering team will demonstrate how the conservation and shooting aspects of the farm, as well as hill management, work well together.

Rural goods chain Countrywide will also be there with some exciting activities for the younger potential shepherds Mr Freestone said displays would be set up in the village hall alongside the sale of Overbury lamb casserole, with proceeds going towards the renovation of the hall kitchen.

“With the terrible effects the weather has had on many livestock farmers across the north of the country, we are supporting RABI with collection boxes and donations will be passed on to the charity to be used in supporting struggling farmers who have lost so many sheep, lambs and cattle,” he said.
