One of the lovely family-friendly places to visit in Wiltshire throughout the year is Roves Farm near Swindon. The lambing, calving and farrowing season gets underway again at Roves Farm this March and it’s everyone’s favourite time of year!
The main flock of breeding ewes are due to lamb, and Roves Farm is expecting over 400 lambs to be born in the barn this month. Although there is no guarantee, there is a good chance you might even be able to see one being born! Meet the new born lambs in the barn, before they head out to the fields to enjoy the sunshine and grass.
The spring-calving Sussex cows are due to calve throughout March. The perfect time to meet the new born calves in the barn and to get up close to some of the farm’s Sussex cattle. Also, there will be new litters of piglets every month. Meet piglets of all shapes and sizes to scratch and cuddle!
Just keep up-to-date on Roves Farm’s Facebook page for other new arrival announcements.
Indoor Play Barn open from 9am; Pets’ Corner from 10am; Animal Barn from 10.30am. Closing times vary.
