Free lambing open day at Croots Farm Shop in Derbyshire on Sunday 28th April

Derbyshire farm shop Croots is staging its popular lambing day on Sunday 28th April.

Free to visit, the event is the chance to drop into the lambing sheds and see some of the lambs that have been born at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road, near Duffield, this spring.

Visitors can get up close to pet the lambs and may even get the chance to bottle feed some of them. Kay Croot and husband Steve, who run the farm shop, will be on hand to answer any questions.
