Hopefully July will at last bring some more seasonable weather. There is nothing piglets like more, on a hot summer day, than to roll in their wallows or have their bellies tickled. Even when the sun doesn’t shine, the kids like to get out and about – they never let a fence get in their way.
The Golden Guernsey kids seem to find a new thrill each year – one year it was riding in any vacant push chair they could find and last year they offered an escort service, following visitors to furthest corners of the Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, before trying to head into the cafe to join them for a cup of tea. There will be ducklings and chicks, a new White Park bull not to mention all the changes to the wildlife on the lake and river.
On the 29th July Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm will be holding their Farm and Food Fair. The Fair will combine food demonstrations and food producers with traditional village fete games. So whether you like to watch others preparing something yummy to eat or fancy a go at wanging a welly – there is bound to be something for everyone.
Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, six miles north west of Ipswich off the B1113 between Needham Market and Great Blakenham, opens Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays at 11am.
With entry prices at £6 for adults, £5 for Concessions, £3 for children between four and 16 and under fours free of charge, it would be difficult to find an animal attraction in Suffolk giving better value for money.
