Wroxham Barns hopes to start lamb bottle-feeding on the weekend of 11th /12th February 2017 in time for half-term holidays.  However, this date cannot be guaranteed this far in advance as it is dependent on the number of lambs available, their age and health etc.  The Lamb Bottle Feeding Sessions will be scheduled daily for 11.00am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

When local farmers have orphaned lambs or when ewes can’t feed triplets, these fluffy little bundles of fun come to Wroxham Barns where the dedicated team on Junior Farm take on the task of bottle-feeding them.  From Saturday 11th February they’ll be holding lamb bottle-feeding sessions daily at 11am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm and visitors can come along and help.  It’s fantastic fun, enjoyed by all ages.  There is also a full programme of daily activities on Junior Farm, including cuddle, grooming and feeding sessions with the lambs, goats, pigs, rabbits, chick and ponies as well as indoor play and crafts.
