BAYLHAM House Rare Breeds Farm is celebrating today after re-opening to the public following the foot-and-mouth outbreak.

Richard Storer, part owner of the farm, said: "Easter is our busiest period with the lambing season but unfortunately we lost that.

"We have had to dip into our savings in order to get us through, but are now hoping that we can start to survive again."

The farm has a number of animals including four breeds of cow, seven breeds of sheep and two breeds of pig, of which the farm currently holds three of Britain's rarest breeds.

It is open everyday from 11am – 5pm excluding Mondays.
