A popular farm in Leeds welcomed six little piglets to its numbers last November.

Pippa the Tamworth sow gave birth to the cross-bred piglets at Home Farm on November 9th 2013 which is located at Temple Newsam House, and the new additions have quickly found their feet and are now strong enough to wobble about in their pen, which is located in the stable.

Arriving just before the festive season, the arrival of the piglets proved to be a very popular early Christmas present for staff and visitors to Home Farm, which boasting over 400 sheep, pigs, poultry and goats, along with an interesting mixture of recreated workshops and exhibitions, is a great place for the all the family to enjoy.

Councillor Mark Dobson, executive board member for the environment said:

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome these lovely six new piglets to Home Farm, which already have built up a very big fan club with both staff and visitors alike!

“Exploring and finding out more about a real working farm is really interesting, and with over 400 animals on show along with exhibitions and recreated workshops, Home Farm really is a fantastic place for all the family to visit.”
