Spring Lambs Arriving at Wroxham Barns

The spring lambs are arriving at Junior Farm Wroxham Barns Daily indoor bottle-feeding sessions are scheduled to begin on Saturday, February 13. Photograph shows Eileen Calverley, Junior Farm Manager with new arrivals.

Wroxham Barns’ lambs are all the smallest of triplets from local farms and will consume more than 5,000 litres of milk during the bottle-feeding season up to the end of July. Ewes find it difficult to look after triplets, so Junior Farm visitors who feed the lambs are helping out as surrogate mums. Admission to Junior Farm is £3.95 (under three free), open 10am to 5pm.

The farm was runner up in the National Farm Attractions Network’s Farm of the Year competition in 2008, has Countryside Education Visits Scheme (CEVAS) accreditation and has the learning outside the classroom quality mark from the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom.
