Love Lamb Week, AHDB's (Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board) campaign, returns for its nineth year to celebrate British lamb.

The campaign, which runs from 1 to 7 September, aims to highlight the naturally delicious flavour of British lamb and its environmental credentials helping to shape the British landscape.

This year, farming influencers will get involved across social channels to highlight shepherds and their pies, providing a twist on the traditional shepherd's pie recipe.

The AHDB has produced new and improved lamb guides, delicious recipe images and posters, and health and environment infographics to help you amplify the unique qualities of lamb.

You can download these at AHDB | Love Lamb Week.

Love Lamb Week has grown to become an industry-wide initiative which the NFU has supported along with the NSA (National Sheep Association), AHDB, Red Tractor, the Ulster Farmers’ Union and meat promotion bodies including HCC in Wales, LMC in Northern Ireland and Quality Meat Scotland.
