Sandwell Park Farm in West Bromwich is set to run a week of activities at the farm on Salters Lane.

The farm is home to a wide selection of animals, including chickens, pigs, alpacas and goats, as well as a shire horse and a Shetland pony.

The activities during the half-term holidays will include opportunities to meet the alpaca and two chances each day to feed the lambs.

There will also be the chance to meet the farmers at the park and learn more about their day-to-day work.

Millie Garbett, who is one of the farmers at the park, spoke about what people can expect from the events.

She said: "We're going to have different activities on each day, like chick handling and bottle-feeding the goats.

"It's good for people to see our animals as we have a lot of rare breeds of pigs and lambs here.

"We're a member of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST), which means we get animals and we can breed them ourselves.

The farm will also over craft activities for every day of the half-term holiday events in a unique setting within Sandwell.

Millie said: "It's something very different for people in West Bromwich.

"They'll get to see a different setting and this is the nearest place in West Bromwich to the countryside."
