Children have spent the last few precious days of their summer holidays by getting to know their four-legged friends in a farm.

Belmont Children’s Farm, in The Ridgeway, Mill Hill, has been full of little ones feeding goats, petting rabbits and cooing at the pigs from their play pens.

It features a host of domestic and exotic farm animals including alpacas, rare breeds of rabbits, sheep, cows and stalks.

Owner Andrew Reid opened the farm to get city children in touch with the countryside.
