Despite the weather on Saturday, 230 families visited the farm at Saffron Walden County High School.

Children were able to stroke and handle rabbits and guinea pigs and see chicks, cows and goats.

Youngsters also went on a bunny hunt, writing down the things toy rabbits were holding, items to be found on a farm, and winning an Easter egg at the end.

Teas, homemade cakes and free-range eggs were on sale.

Farm club member Henrietta Kirkpatrick-Tice, 17, said: “The event raised just over £930.

“That will be used to keep the farm going and feed the animals.

“The day is always popular and even in the rain about the same number of families came along. The toy rabbits were all over the farm so the children saw everything.”
