Love Lamb Week 2021

Starting back in 2015 to promote and highlight the passion and dedication farmers give day after day to producing quality food, Love Lamb Week has grown over the years to be a key date in the foodie diary. This year it will be focusing on how the industry has strong sustainability credentials and how the Welsh way of farming is largely non-intensive and very different compared with some of the more industrial systems found in other parts of the world.
