A HEREFORDSHIRE farm attraction which has been taken over by new owners is ready to welcome visitors.

Spring has arrived at 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.

Ms Pillidge said: "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."


She added: "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 boats 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.

The farm is open seven days a week and all display areas are accessible by wheelchair with mobility scooters available on free loan, but advance booking is advised.
