Lost lambs and newborn calfs abounded as spring officially arrived at the Saffron Walden County High Farm open day on Saturday, March 25.
The Agricultural Science Unit (ASU) held its annual Easter Fair, the first under its new name, welcoming attendees young and old.
Activities on offer included bottle feeding Xena, an orphan lamb, egg collecting, ferret walking and goat milking.
Members of the public had the opportunity to meet the animals that live at the ASU including its latest edition, a heifer calf who was just 36 hours old.
Esther Blakey, ASU Farm Manager, said: “I am pleased that everyone enjoyed the opportunity to visit the ASU and see what a valuable educational and community resource the unit is. We hope to run many more open afternoons and look forward to seeing people at our main summer event.”
