Spring is here, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by visiting some cute new arrivals at Wimpole Home Farm.
Lambing time has fallen a little later than usual, and will run until next Sunday, April 24.
Visitors are invited to get into the ‘spring’ of things by watching the new born lambs, and learning about the life of sheep.
There is also the possibility that guests will witness the birth of one of Wimpole’s rare breed sheep.
Visits will be running every day between 10.30am and 5pm, until next Sunday, April 24.

Children can also have a go at being a young farmer when they visit home farm, by grooming donkeys, driving a mini tractor and trying their hand at milking.
