EASTER at Roves Farm is proving to be a popular hit with hundreds of families making the most of the spring sunshine to visit the working farm in Seven-hampton.

The Easter Bunny has been hopping about the farm since April 5 and he will be on the farm until Easter Monday.

As part of the festivities hundreds of children have also been able to enjoy arts and crafts, making Easter cards, drawing pictures and making fluffy chicks.

They have also been able to help feed the lambs and goats on the farm, and pet the animals.

Pippa Burr, marketing manager at the farm, said: “It has been going really well. Everyone has been enjoying themselves – I think the sunshine brings everybody out.

“The Easter Bunny chase has been the biggest hit but bottle feeding the baby goats and holding the fluffy chicks have also been popular.”

Creatures that children can see and learn more about on the farm include pigs and piglets, rabbits, sheep , chickens ducks, guinea fowl, alpacas, donkeys and Donald the Highland bull.

On Easter weekend itself, there will also be a Kids Farmyard Art Show and Sale, featuring animal portraits in the Old Granary from 11am to 3pm.

All Easter-themed activities at the farm will continue until the end of Easter Monday.
