Celebrate the first ever Llamb’s Day on 1st August
Llamb’s Day is celebrated on the 1st August and heralds the arrival of the first new season lamb in Wales. It coincides with Lammas Day – or Calan Awst – which is the first harvest festival of the year. Llamb’s Day is a time of great celebration, a time to gather friends, family and neighbours and feast on the finest, freshest lamb that's been reared on the lush, Welsh grasslands using farming methods that date back centuries.
Just as Lammas Day represents the first harvest festival of the year, Llamb’s Day is traditionally marked by roasting the first lamb of the season. Communities come together and feast outdoors, and it is said that if a couple meets on Llamb’s Day they are destined to stay together.
Celebrate with us by feasting on Welsh Lamb with friends and family, making the special Llamb’s Day burger, entering our social media competition to win a BBQ and a Welsh Lamb hamper, and sharing your favourite Welsh Lamb recipes with us on social media!
