Spring Babies at Easter 2019

6th to 22nd April 2019

Experience the ‘Spring Babies’ Event at Green Dragon Eco Farm during the Easter Holidays. They’re so cute!

 The Green Dragon ‘Spring Babies’ event is a family friendly event and will host a variety of themed, educational and fun experiences and activities.  During the school holidays, there will be a full programme of animal encounters with lots of new babies to get close to, such as Oxford Sandy & Black piglets, goat kids, ducklings and chicks!  And the rare

breed ewes are getting ready for our lambing season here at Green Dragon, so there’ll be plenty of new born lambs to bottle feed by the Easter holidays. They’ll come in all shapes and sizes as there are seven different rare breeds of sheep on the farm! The Spring Babies encounters will take place in the Animal Barn.

During the holiday, Green Dragon will be running ‘Spring Babies’ themed arts and craft activities and competitions.

There will be a Spring Babies Quiz Trail with each completed quiz going in to a prize draw. Winners will be announced the week after half term. First prize is a Green Dragon Family Day Pass (two adults and two children)!

Special Guests, local wildlife organisations, the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) and the RSPB will be providing activities and information about native species and their young to inspire visitors.

 

The indoor and outdoor play facilities will be open; Pets’ Corner will have animal encounters running as normal. Both our cafés will be open, serving our ‘Farm to Fork’ breakfasts and lunch menus in the Soft Play Barn and woodfired pizza in the Eco Centre Cafe.

Paid admission into the farm attraction applies (All activities once admission is paid are FOC).
