Lambing Experience

Monday 1st April 2024

Lambing Experience

Lambing is now over for 2024. Tickets for Lambing 2025 go on sale January 2025

What is this?

  • Come and visit our farm during one of the busiest times of the year, lambing time. With over 1300 expectant ewes (mummy sheep) to lamb this 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.
  • You will learn all about sheep, and see the care that goes into them during lambing time. You will get the chance to feed the sheep, and with any luck, witness the birth of a new life on the farm. (Although this can’t be guaranteed for obvious reasons). The experience will end with cuddling lambs, and lots of photo opportunities.


Getting Here

How To Find Us

Arnprior Farm is very easy to find. The farm is located in the village of Arnprior itself. Arnprior is located on the A811, 11 miles west of Stirling. The pumpkin event is clearly signposted as you approach the village from both directions.

If you are arriving by bus, the bus stop is in the village too, with buses coming form Stirling and Glasgow/Balfron. Look at the First Bus timetable for more info! Please note that no buses run on Sundays to Arnprior.
