More lambs are expected over the next few weeks. The open day will also have calves and other animals on show. Visitors can try their hand at goat milking, join in with the Easter Egg hunt, and take part in egg decorating on Saturday, March 25.

The farm will also run canine first aid courses on the weekend of March 18-19. For more information, contact Esther or Emily at asu@swchs.net

There are also places left for current Year 11 students on next year’s post-16 animal care course, starting in September. Young people interested in this course should email the same address.

The Farm open day is from 1pm to 4pm. Entrance fee is £2 per person and under fives admitted free.
