Lily’s Fourteen Piglets – first new arrivals at Wroxham Barns new Piggery

Lily, one of Wroxham Barns’ resident sows gave birth to 14 piglets on 14 April, the first new arrivals at the new piggery at Junior Farm.

The team at Wroxham Barns has been very busy over the winter with a £325,000 investment scheme that has transformed Junior Farm, along with improvements to the Craft Studios in the upper and lower courtyards including Uncle Stuart’s Brewery’s new Visitor Centre (opens after Easter).

Pride of place at Junior Farm goes to the new undercover piggery and Piggy’s Play Sty. The piggery features four sties, giving visitors the opportunity to get face to face with the Lily’s new piglets. Piggy’s Play Sty is an indoor play barn – a great place for children to let of steam. Add to that the new poultry pen and hen house, where you can collect your own eggs and the all-weather pony grooming yard and stable and there is so much more to enjoy at Junior Farm, not to forget the daily hands-on bottle-feeding sessions with spring lambs.

Wroxham Barns, two miles from Hoveton on the Tunstead Road, is open daily 10am to 5pm. Tel. 01603 783762,
