New-born lambs pull in people of all ages at Bowthorpe Park Farm, near Bourne

Hundreds of cute lambs have been born on a farm near Bourne.

Both old and young have been pouring into Bowthorpe Park Farm, near Manthorpe to see the new lambs being born and have cuddles and bottle feed the new arrivals

George Blanchard, manager of the farm, said: “It’s been going really, really well and the lambing is still on-going until April 22.

“We have had a lot of families come down to the farm but it is not just the youngsters - we also get a lot of older people who really enjoy it as well.

“We get a lot of people who keep coming back each year for our lambing.

“People of all ages enjoy getting up close and personal to the lambs and sheep.

“We have had around 200 people come along to the farm and we have about two orthree lambs born each day from our flock of 115.

“From the April 1 to April 5, we opened it up for all the local schools, nurseries and colleges and now we have got people coming for the Easter holidays.

“It’s a really good way of getting people down to see a real working farm and seeing where their food comes from.

“As well as the lambing, we also had a straw pit and they could also milk a cow .”

Covering around 400 acres, Bowthorpe Park Farm is a family affair with all the Blanchards involved in some way.

The lambing at Bowthorpe Park Farm runs daily from 10 am until 4pm to April 22.

Adult tickets cost £4.50, Children £3.50 and threes are free.
