Spring Lambs and Piglets, Tractor Rides through the blossom and Easter Crafts
The annual Easter event at Brogdale Farm, Faversham will take place on the 19, 20, 21 April 2019.
The 2019 Easter celebrations will feature hatching chicks this year alongside the ever popular lambs, rabbits and piglets. Each year the range of animals gets bigger and to add falconry display to the event is going to be a great addition.
As well as some beautiful owls, the falconry team will offer daily flying displays to show off the incredible skills the birds of prey possess. Gemma Raines, from Joes Bows Country Sports comments: “we thoroughly enjoy spring shows. It’s a real pleasure to get the birds into action and introduce the new birds for the season”.
Incubated chicks will be hatching over the Easter period and our ‘Eggspert’ will be on hand to offer advice to any budding hen keepers.
The spring lambs are always a treat and visitors can learn all about their journey and why orphan lambs are so common. Children will also get the opportunity to volunteer to feed the lambs which is always a popular endeavour. Lizzie will also be hosting talks on keeping pet rabbits at home.
Faversham Miniature Railway will be running train rides all weekend through the orchards. Or, the tractor trailer will take the children up into the orchards for an egg hunt trailing through the blossoming trees. Found among the trees will be the Easter Bunny to help children complete the hunt and get a chocolate prize. Children can also enjoy Easter crafts and make something special to take home.
Usbourne books will be on hand in the story telling corner sharing tales from their new farm yard range of books. While, Mad Cat brewery will be offering tours and tastings all weekend for the grown ups.
The National Fruit Collection preserves a collective range of both fruiting and ornamental apples, pears, plums, apricots and cherries. The vast variation in different flowers offers an exceptional and unique show of blossom.
