Meet and squeak!

There are five newborn piglets waiting to meet visitors this weekend at West Lodge Rural Centre.

The farm park, near Desborough, is a working farm but offers a whole host of visitor attractions to teach people more about the day-to-day running of a farm.

The five piglets arrived just over a week ago, born to one of the farms British Lops, named for the large ears which hang over their face.

There was a sixth piglet born but sadly it didn’t survive.

Families can meet the new family this weekend in The Piggery where staff will be on hand to answer questions.

The farm has also welcomed some baby rabbits, named Adele and Ed after the recent Brit Award winners, and new lambs are arriving all the time.

Visitors can also feed the ducks, groom a pony and have a go at bottle feeding some of the young animals.

There is plenty to do under cover, too, with many animals on display in the barns.

Visitors can also walk one of the nature trails, ranging from a quarter of a mile to three and a half miles.

West Lodge is open this weekend from 10am until 5pm.

Admission is £5.95 for adults, £4.95 for children and £5.45 for pensioners. Under twos go free.

A family ticket is £20.
