Easter fun at Stables Farm Shop

Updated: 9:53 am, May 07, 2015

THE CHANCE to get up close and personal with baby chicks, rabbits and lambs was on offer at the Stables Farm Shop.

Families flocked to the Astwood Bank farm as part of its Easter Egg-travaganza event last Saturday April 4.

Children had rides on tractors, bottle fed lambs and held baby chicks and rabbits, while they also got to meet and greet pigs and goats.

There was also the opportunity to explore the farm’s woods, take part in an Easter egg quiz trail and say hello to a variety of creepy crawlies before sampling barbecued treats.
