Spring is a significant time in the farming calendar. The sight of lambs scattering the fields is well known as a welcome sight, representing new beginnings and the end of a long winter. There’s nothing quite like the magic of lambing, making it the ideal way to introduce children to farming and the countryside. Pulling on your wellies and getting stuck into the lambing experience is something you’ll never forget!
