I visited with my granddaughter to feed a lamb. I was distressed to see these tiny, scrawny, dirty, uncared for, very hungry animals huddled together in the corner or wandering about crying for food.
We were given a very small amount of milk in a bottle which didn’t appear to be enough and didn’t satisfy the lamb who was still looking for food afterwards.
The goats were well fed, happy little things as were the pigs, but the contrast between a fed on demand lamb outside with its mother and the sad little creatures in the barn was upsetting.
There are chicks in a container outside with no supervision and no signs to suggest to parents that it’s not acceptable for a 4 year old to pick up and squeeze a very young chick however cute they think it is!
The pigmy goats were nice, and well cared for, as were the donkeys but the Alpacas, who, it says like to be in a herd, were timid and shy, maybe that’s because two is not a herd!
The cafe is vastly overpriced, a child’s lunch is half a sandwich, cheese or ham, a small drink carton, a very small square of cake and approx half a bag of crisps for £5! I couldn’t comment on adult food as I asked for a cream tea and was given 2 fruit scones and butter and a small pot of tea, that said the butter was nice. Not quite a cream tea though!
I expected more from the hype, the award winning blurb, I’m not sure what exactly I expected but it wasn’t to leave there sad but I did and I won’t be going back.
