Throughout the summer there is always so much to do at Baylham Rare Breeds Farm. Situated in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, on the banks of the River Gipping, the farm is a delight for animal and countryside lovers alike.
During spring, regulars to the farm will have seen plenty of new arrivals – lambs, piglets, kids and calves. But in addition to these youngsters two large black pigs, Ella and Nina, arrived in June and Gideon, a Golden Guernsey arrived in July. So there are plenty of new faces, as well as the regulars all waiting to mount a charm offensive, in the hope of a little food and attention. But if tickling piglets is more your thing, look out for Pebbles and Bam Bam the two Kune Kunes – they are likely to be found in the orchard and love to have their bellies tickled.
Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is six miles north west of Ipswich, off the B1113 between Great Blakenham and Needham Market. It opens Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holidays from 10am to 5pm. With entry prices at £6 for adults, £5 for concessions, £3 for children (aged 4-16) and free entry for under fours, it would be difficult to find a more diverting and better value attraction in Suffolk. The farm café is open all day, selling homemade cakes, lunches, hot and cold drinks and ice cream.
