Our 2021 lambing experience will be open to book in January 2021

Established by our family in 1936, we farm our 800-acre land in Arnprior, Stirlingshire all year round. From lambing experiences in Spring to our famous pick your own pumpkin patch in Autumn, we are always busy!

We are so proud of our lambing experience at Arnprior Farm, which is open to small groups to visit at weekends while we are busy lambing our sheep. It is something we have worked hard to make a unique, memorable and safe lambing experience. We want to make farming accessible to everyone and showcase a real live working farm in Scotland, and there is nothing more exciting and more like Spring than meeting and holding a new-born lamb.

What will you experience at Arnprior Lambing

Come and visit our farm during one of the busiest times of the year, lambing time. With nearly 1300 expectant ewes (mummy sheep) to lamb every spring, this is your chance to get a real first-hand experience of what it is like to be a farmer at this time of year. And with any luck, witness the birth a new life onto the farm. (Although this can’t be guaranteed for obvious reasons).
