Spring has arrived on Small Breeds Farm in Kington which means fluffy lambs, newborn kids, sweet chicks and even baby owls hatching! 

The popular Herefordshire tourist attraction was taken over last year by young local couple Ella Pillidge and Lewis Jones and they have already started to put their own stamp on it, from a new logo to a revamped Tea Room with a more extensive menu.

“They are looking forward to welcoming visitors old and new to experience the joy of spring on the farm, as Ella explains;

“We love Easter at the farm because there is new life around every corner.

“We are especially excited to introduce our new Owlet Room, which is one of the very few places in the UK that you can get up close to owls and watch them hatch.

“Visit us to see everything from tiny fluffy chicks and ducklings to Domino and Digestive the pygmy kids and lots of lambs.

“Small Breeds Farm is famed for being extremely hands on and we actively encourage cuddling our animals, especially the rabbits, goats and guinea pigs who love all the attention they receive.”

The family-friendly attraction also has one of the best collections of owls in Europe including the rare Rusty Barred Owl, the small but mighty Tenglmalm’s Owl as well as the illusive Black Banded Owls.

“All display areas are accessible by wheelchair with mobility scooters available on free loan (advance booking is advised).

The recently updated Tea Room now has a much larger menu, serving sandwiches and sausage rolls through to jacket potatoes. A wider selection of cakes is also on offer, plus kids’ lunchboxes and soft scoop ice-creams. 

Small Breeds Farm is open every day from 10.30am to 5pm, with plenty of parking and much of the Farm under cover in case of poor weather.  Entry is £11 for adults, £7.50 for children, under 2s go free. Season tickets are also available.
