Meet ‘new kids on the block’ at South Brockwells Farm, Little Horsted. They are called Ranger and Ford and are pictured with their mum Gertrude.
Two more kids were born at the farm over the festive break, Eve on Christmas Eve and boxer on Boxing Day, but they are so friendly it is difficult to get a photo of them. They won’t stay far enough away from the camera to be snapped.
Sarah Robinson, one of the family team running the farm, says all four are doing really well and will join the main herd of Boer goats in the spring.
Game tasting event
The farm is holding a free game tasting event on Saturday, January 18, and Sarah says that with the game bird season finishing on January 31, the family hopes customers old and new will join them in the shop to try out some of their favourite dishes and stock up before the season ends.
The taster day will run from 10am to 3pm and a selection of stews and casseroles ‘one pot wonders’, will be available for people to try with a ‘small glass of something’ to accompany them.
A programme of events for 2020 is currently being put together for the farm and will include two Lambing Live days, and a Bluebell Walk. More details will follow.
