Open Days at Abbotts View Farm

Abbotts View Farm is located up Moat Lane, on the way to Norduck. They plan to hold two open days soon. James and Jo write:

We currently have two open days planned - the first on Good Friday 18th April and the second on Sunday 8th June as part of Open Farm Sunday. Both days will be from 11-4pm with free entry and will provide an opportunity for residents to come and have a look at what we've been up to.

We have 30 alpacas (with 5 babies due in May), an RSPCA rescue pony and 3 miniature ponies as well as ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs. We will have some more piglets arriving sometime in April so will have more free range pork products for sale later in the year. We will have some craft stalls selling their wares and homemade cake and refreshments for sale and Easter craft activities in the barn for the kiddies. We have beautiful yarn spun this year from our baby alpacas from which we have hand knitted some items but also have yarn for sale.

So, why not pop along and have a look!
