Where are the best places to see lambs in the North East this Easter?

This post will share some of the best places to see and feed lambs across the North East this Easter. I will add more events as they are announced. For a full list of local farms (including free places to visit), please see this post. Always check opening hours direct before visiting. 


Broom House Farm, Wallington 

Broom House Farm in Wallington offers a couple of ways to get up close and learn more about lambs. First up is 'Lambing Shed Live' which offers the chance for a guided tour of the lambing shed where you might actually see a lamb being born. 

Or how about becoming a Lambing Apprentice where you will join a full shift in the lambing shed with tasks including care of newborn lambs, orphan bottle feeding, providing feed, water and hay in the pens, mucking out. 

Dates have not been released at time of publishing but keep checking the Broom House Farm website for updates.
