Kids can meet kids when Fielding Cottage opens its gates to the farm at Honingham so children can get up close and personal with some baby goats.

The award-winning small business supplies goat’s milk, cheese and meat throughout the UK from its own herd and had its latest cheese, Wensum White, placed among the top cheese in the world at an international competition.

The annual event, Kids Meet Kids, takes place over two days this year - Saturday April 11 and Sunday April 12 - and will be open on both days from 10am to 3pm. As always, you will be able to meet the kids and have a go at bottle feeding them, and this year they will also have pigs, sheep and their latest addition, Luna the pony, for visitors to meet. Also new this year are bouncy castles, the world’s largest popcorn wok, Norwich City Football Club’s Aviva Lemur (Saturday only), and a beer tent. Bottle feeding times will be 11am, 12.30pm and 2pm.

Barbecue, ice-creams and other refreshments will be available and you can try and buy the cheeses and its own range of goat’s milk skin-care products.

Organiser and owner of the business Sam Steggles said: “We have made this bigger and better than in previous years.”

Tickets are now on sale online at which will save visitors at least 30 percent on the gate price. No dogs allowed.
