Little Owl Farm Park Worcestershire Easter holidays 2024

The Little Owl Farm park events page is truly terrible, with the events scrolling on a slider so quickly that it’s difficult to read even the small amount of information on there. I also couldn’t click through to a page relating to the individual Easter event. After many attempts, I’ve managed to work out that visitors will be able to see and bottle feed lambs and enjoy a tractor ride.
