More than 2,500 visitors flocked to Westlands Farm Shop's annual lambing days in Meon Valley.

Despite muddy conditions, families from across Hampshire and beyond donned their wellies to meet the Romney sheep flock's newest lambs.

The four-day event also offered face-painting, a bouncy castle, a barbecue grill, and an educational opportunity for children to learn about the lambing season first-hand.

Kayleigh Collett of Westlands Farm Shop, in Pricketts Hill, Shedfield, said she was delighted to see another great turn-out for the lambing days.

She added: "We had so many messages this year asking when our lambing days would be returning - it’s always been a really popular event and I was so pleased to see so many visitors once again this year.

"Being aware of local agriculture and food production is so important for children. We like to use these days as an opportunity for learning and seeing farming first-hand."

One visitor said: "We had such a fantastic time at the lambing event and our children are already counting down the days until next year! It was so lovely to see them have such a close encounter with the lambs."

Westlands Farm Shop offers a range of locally sourced groceries and gifts as well as its own butchery. For more information, visit
