Getting involved in lamb feeding and goat walking, hundreds have come through the doors over the last few days.

The Hobbs Lane farm near Garstang also boasts more than 200 species of snow drop flowers as well as spectacular views of the forest of Bowland.

Owner of the farm Edwina Miller said: “It been really busy and the farm has proved very popular. Of course the lamb feeding and goat walking is loved by the children and they were actually really good with seeing the lambs being born.

“It can be quite a messy process but they were fascinated rather than disgusted and even liked all the gooey parts. I think even the adults were surprised at how quickly the lambs got to their feet and started going to their mother for milk.

“Hopefully we’ll continue to be busy and have lots more people to see it.”
