Thanks to our Chair Chris and his lovely wife Rose who recently celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary and asked their family and friends, in lieu of gifts, to make a donation to Acorn farm. With the money we were then gifted by Rose and Chris we were able to purchase Roddy the Ram. Roddy arrived at the farm last week and is settling in nicely with his new friends. Thank you Rose and Chris for your generosity, we are very grateful to you both for your continued support and thoughtfulness.

Welcome Bertie, Lucy's Piglets and Rodders
What a week it's been on the farm. Yesterday Heidi, one of our Pygmy Goats, gave birth to her son Bertie. Mum and Kid are both doing so well and Heidi is being a great mum.
During the night Lucy, one of our pigs, gave birth to 10 piglets, they are very cute and all doing well. Lucy is an expert mum and is caring for her little ones really well.
Today we took delivery of a new ram called Rodders. He will be joining our family at the farm, he is a handsome lad and we are so pleased to have him here.

Thank you Edge Hill University Volunteers
Friday 8th July we welcomed a team of hardy volunteers from Edge Hill University who bravely volunteered to sepnd the day with us to paint walls, murals, picnic tables, and the children's play area. Our Meerkat enclosure now has a new resident zebra who seems to be getting on just fine with the Meerkats.
