See some spring lambs this bank holiday weekend
Spring has sprung and there’s plenty of procreation down on the farm. Broadlees Farm in Swingate, near Dover, is holding its popular annual lambing open days from Good Friday through to Sunday, April 15.
Held during the six week lambing period, the farm is not usually open to the public, but opens its gates every year to let visitors see how the farm works during the busy time. Visitors may even get to hold a lamb and, if you time it right, you could even be lucky enough to see one being born. Farm managers support the NSPCC with the event, which is open from 1pm to 4pm daily.
There is no need to book and entry is £5, with £4 for children.
The farm also has a Scene of Special Scientific Interest where orchids grow and many butterflies live, which is a fertiliser-free zone.
Pregnant women are not able to attend for Health and Safety reasons. Find the farm at Deal Road, Swingate, Dover, CT15 5DL. Or visit broadleesfarm.com. It is also possible to arrange a visit for a school or educational group.
