What is this?
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.
You will be able to help care, feed, bed and water the ewes and their new-born lambs
Your booked slot will last 1 hour. In this time, you can help the farmer with the chores in the lambing shed, or if you prefer, just soak up the atmosphere and play with lambs!
Bring outdoor clothing, preferably waterproof and that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty! Wear outdoor footwear, wellies are ideal. We will provide latex gloves for extra health and safety.
