ODDS Farm Park in Beaconsfield is celebrating an adorable litter of rare piglets in time for the October half-term.

Matilda the sow gave birth to 12 piglets with father George, a Middle White boar, on Thursday, October 5.

Matilda, a Berkshire sow is a ‘priority breed’ for the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. It is normally black, with some white on the snout, on the lower legs, and on the tip of the tail. It is a rare breed in the UK.

Visitors can meet the new piglets at Odds Farm throughout the half-term holiday between 10am to 5.30pm.

It's the perfect time to visit with the farm's annual Pumpkin Festival where more than 7,000 pumpkin seeds were planted by farm workers in the spring ready for harvesting late autumn.

Little ones can choose their own mini wheelbarrow before exploring the Oddlotment Pumpkin Patch to carefully select their own pumpkin to take home.

Louise Winslow, assistant general manager at Odds Farm Park, said: “We absolutely love the Pumpkin Festival here at Odds.

"It’s a riot of colour every year and always makes for some special family memories and social media shots for our visiting guests.

“We hope children and their parents will also enjoy the host of other pumpkin-related activities we have here including our Halloween trail around the farm.”
