Calf Bottle-Feeding at Wroxham Barns Junior Farm

Calf Bottle-Feeding at Wroxham Barns Junior Farm

Help us feed our hungry calves

Details

Everybody loves calves and the Wroxham Barns calf bottle-feeding sessions on Junior Farm are back - from Saturday 15th July and all through the school summer holidays, 7 days a week, twice daily at 11am and 3pm. The young calves come from a local farm and visitors will have great fun, getting close and having a go at bottle-feeding these hungry babies who will stay for several months. Learn more about dairy cows and how their calves come to us after they’ve had all the goodness they need for a healthy start in life so that their mums can continue to produce milk for our breakfasts and cups of tea.
