See some spring lambs this bank hol­i­day week­end

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - NEWS -

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.
