Congratulations and celebrations! An early Christmas present arrived for the Farmers at Odds Farm Park in the form of an adorable litter of piglets!
Born to mum Emily, a Gloucestershire Old Spot sow, the super cute new arrivals are Gloucestershire Old Spot cross Tamworth pigs and are settling in well to life on the farm! Visitors can meet them in the Undercover Animal Barns and will recognise them by their black spots and noisy oinks!
Children will be interested to learn that the the Gloucestershire Old Spot breed of pig originated from the Berkeley Vale on the south of the River Severn. They were frequently kept in orchards earning the nickname “The Orchard Pig” and there is a legend that says their black spots are actually bruises from falling apples! The breed of Tamoworth pig comes from the Midlands, originating from crossing imported pigs such as the Red Barbadan or Axford.
As well as plenty more furry friends to meet, this Christmas Holiday, children will love to take part in the Daily Animal Activities and Demonstrations. Combined with the Indoor Play Barn, acres of Outdoor Adventure and madness and mayhem from the Crazy Entertainers, there’s so much fun at Odds Farm Park!
PLEASE NOTE, Odds Farm Park closes at 3.30pm on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, so last entry is at 2.30pm and on these days, there will be no entertainer. Odds Farm Park is also closed on 25, 26 December and 1 January 2017.
Family day out favourite, Odds Farm Park is easily reached from Beaconsfield, Amersham, Chesham, Gerrards Cross, High Wycombe, Great Missenden and Wendover. For more information, directions and prices visit the family days out website www.oddsfarm.co.uk
