The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) will be holding a lambing weekend at its Harnhill Manor Farm, near Cirencester, on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March 2019.
The University will be welcoming families and members of the local community to visit the farm and find out what goes on during lambing season. Visitors will get the chance to get up close to the lambs, and hopefully see some being born.
People can also enjoy tractor and trailer rides, educational displays on farming and food production and meet RAU students and staff. There will also be a picnic area, food, and refreshments.
The event will be running from 10:00am to 4:00pm both days. There will be a charge of £10 per car. RAU Farms Director, Tom Overbury, said: “This will be a great opportunity for people to see what we do on the RAU farms and also to learn about how some of our food is produced. We hope to provide something of interest to all age groups.”
The address is:

Manor Farm, Harnhill
