Details

Step into spring at Barleylands this Easter. With lots of baby animals, there will be a host of new arrivals to meet and greet.

We’ll be welcoming bundles of new lambs, calves and goats. New for 2017, explore our huge hen house with chick nursery, ducklings, hens with chicks and hatching talks four times daily.

Said Farm Park Manager Dave Finkle “Spring is always a lovely time to visit the Farm Park, get outdoors and up close with the animals. Our new arrivals range from calves to lambs and everything in between! There’ll be plenty of opportunity to see something truly magical too with hatching chicks and lambing live. With all our ‘egg-cellent’ extra activities there’ll be so much going on every day throughout the Easter holidays!”

As well as all the spring babies, Barleylands will also have ‘egg-stra’ activities around the Farm Park. The Easter Bunny will be hopping around the park meeting families. You can also take part in our giant Easter egg hunt, plus there’ll be interactive reptile sessions, lamb bottle feeding and bird of prey displays.
