Farm park steps into spring

New-born lambs are a sign of the changing seasons

SPRING HAS SPRUNG at North Devon Farm Park, which has welcomed its first lambs of the year.

Owner Lewis Patterson’s son, Arran, aged seven, was on hand to pose with his new four-legged friends.

There are 42 longwool sheep on site, with a mix of native breeds, and many more lambs are expected on the Barnstaple farm between now and mid-April.

The park will be open from 10am-4pm Thursdays to Sundays until Easter, when opening hours will be extended. Visit
