Easter at Hogshaw Farm

Spring is one of the best times on the farm as new life appears once again. This Easter we’re celebrating the fresh new season with bouncy lambs, goat kids, hatchlings, spring planting and even special appearances from the Easter Bunny!

Get hands on with our daily lamb bottle feeding sessions and learn more from our expert team about how we help these little ones to thrive. You can also visit our hatchery in the Animal Barn to see our rare breed chicken eggs as they incubate and get the chance to hold a cute little hatchling!

Meet our special guest, the Easter Bunny, and also meet our resident rabbits & guinea pigs in our Furry Friends daily encounters. Plus of course, all the usual fun of the farm, including outdoor adventure play, bird display, creature corner, wildlife zone, spring farm trail & more!

Spring on the Farm Event – 29 March – 14 April
