A family farm park welcomes visitors to learn more about rare animals and for fun activities during the Rare Breeds Month. 

The children’s family farm park Odds Farm Park in Wooburn Green just off the M40 is one of only 27 farms in the country approved by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, a conservation charity working for the survival of the UK’s rare breeds of farm animals and equines.

Odds is a home to 16 rare breeds classed as ‘priority’ or ‘at risk’ including three Middle White pigs, ten Bagot goats and an Exmoor Pony.

The farm’s own Tamworth pig is now so critically endangered it is considered as rare as the Giant Panda or the Sumatran Tiger.

Head of Guest Operations Louise Winslow said: “Now in its fourth year, our Rare Breeds Month is an opportunity for visitors to learn more about rare breed farm animals and the vital work farms such as ours do to support their breeding programmes.

 “We will be showcasing some of our rare breeds with demonstrations from our animal handlers.  There will also be an activity trail guiding visitors around the farm, so no one misses meeting some of our rarest animals.

 “We have also set up an interactive learning station for our younger guests to find out more about these rare breeds.”
