A COMMUNITY farm has seen in the new year with the early births of some adorable goats, lambs and piglets.

Greenmeadow Community Farm in Cwmbran, Torfaen, has been run by locals for 25 years.

Last week the team welcomed the first new arrivals of 2019.

Two Anglo Nubian goats were born to proud first-time mum Dotty. The young kids came into the world two weeks early, and have been fitted with winter coats to keep the cold out.

Also arriving early were two Texel cross lambs, who made their appearance a week ahead of schedule. The ewe and ram lambs are doing well, and their birth kicks off lambing season for the farm.

Greenmeadow is expecting 55 more lambs from 32 ewes between now and the end of march.

The farm’s Welsh pedigree pig, Norma, had her fourth litter of 11 piglets, with four more litters of piglets due at the end of the month.

The new arrivals join Kracker the Welsh Black bull calf born just before Christmas.

Greenmeadow is closed to the public until February 1, when there will be lots of baby animals for visitors to admire.

The farm’s commercial manager Kate Holly said the staff were excited to open up to the public again.
