Spring has truly sprung at Easton Farm Park.

Staff at the attraction near Wickham Market have been thrilled to see a number of new arrivals, including baby lambs and baby goats.

Fiona Siddall, the farm’s owner, said: “For us, it is a sign that Spring is coming and Winter is, hopefully, on the way out.

“It’s a lovely way to introduce people to their countryside, and it’s an opportunity for the kids to run around outside and blow away the cobwebs.”

Standing out from the crowd are two orphaned kids, who sadly lost their mother and third sibling shortly after their birth.

However, Ms Siddall promised the baby goats would be well looked after.

“On a cold night they will be sleeping on someone’s kitchen floor in front of a warm fire, much like the family dog,” she said.
