They open the farm every year for Open Lambing where you can see lambs being born and maybe cuddle an orphan lamb. There’s also free tractor and trailer rides, chicks and ducklings handling area, a Café, and a Shop.
For a few days every year, Shabden Park Farm hold farm open days, where they throw the farm gate open to anyone who wants to come and learn about them and the way they farm. The farm park takes part annually in Open Farm Sunday, a national day when farmers invite their neighbours and the general public onto their farms to see what goes on and to talk directly to the farmer. Their open days are timed to coincide with events in the farming year, such as lambing.
