This weekend we saw the arrival of a new addition to the farm and the Suffolk Punch collection. Lily has given birth to a male foal – yet to be named. (born on the weekend that Prince Harry and Megan were married you can guess what people are suggesting).
Pictured below is Steve with the foal – you can see how fond the two horse are of him. Steve and Yvonne have been watching over Lily for 72 hours before the foal arrived – Steve had very little sleep in that time as he watched over the mum to be.
The Suffolk Punch breed is a rear and endangered animal – come along to Easton Farm Park and see our 4 mares and now this little chap. It is an amazing thing to see.
The Suffolk Show will see the launch of this years range of toy tractors for Easton Farm Park. After The Suffolk Show, these will all join the fleet on the Farm Park!
The Suffolk Show is on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st May
Come and see us at our stand: meet the animals (including some of our newest arrivals) and take a trip on our latest tractor range.
Tractors have a special place in the minds of youngsters, we even have a dedicated tractor day on the 25th to the 27th August. Visit our Tractors, Diggers and Toys page for more information.
The pedal tractors here at Easton Farm Park are always a popular attraction for children coming to the farm, free to use on entry – great fun and super exercise.
Take a look at the pictures below to see the latest range-
Lily our Suffolk Punch is keeping us on tenterhooks, she is currently 9 days over the due date we were given. The experienced team here are certain that the foal will arrive the early part of next week.
It is amazing to think that the foal when born is likely to weigh 14 stone. That is the weight of a grown man!
The Suffolk Punch is a rare breed and we delighted to have 4 mares at Easton Farm Park. If all goes well, we will soon have 5 Suffolk Punch’s here.
The team at BBC Radio Suffolk are in touch daily, eagerly awaiting our new arrival because they are looking to adopt our new born foal. Mark Murphy, BBC Radio Suffolk’s morning presenter will be amongst the first to hear when the Suffolk Punch foal is born.
Fabulous family fun this Bank Holiday
Easton Farm Park is at its very best on a sunny bank holiday weekend. Come and enjoy a day full of activities for the youngsters – see the animals, feed the animals, lots of trips around the farm, ride a pony, indoor and outdoor play areas. See all the activities here.

As very proud owners of Suffolk Punch horses we are very conscious about the sensitivity of the future of the breed. It was a surprise for us to hear about the recent news that the Suffolk Punch is more at risk than the Giant Panda.
Experts have calculated that the breed has as little as 10 years to be saved. Whilst this is terrible news it doesn’t mean that there will be no Suffolk Punches left in 10 years, a healthy horse will live over 20 years.
We had a foal last year and have a plans to keep producing a foal each year. Lily shown below is expected to have a foal at the end of April or beginning of May. Poppy is away at the moment at the Suffolk Punch Trust where she is meeting her stallion and hopefully will be expecting in 11 months time. The concern about the “10 years” term relates to the gene pool and the need to look at the breeding programmes, this is where valuable organisations like the Suffolk Horse Society offer excellent support.
On BBC Radio Suffolk this morning Jordan Bailey, manager of Easton Farm Park was speaking to Mark Murphy about the situation. Mark is helping to build awareness about the importance of supporting the Suffolk Punch, there are various ways you can help, visiting businesses like ours, The Suffolk Punch Trust, Rede Hall Farm Park – for further support there is a very important organisation called the Suffolk Horse Society, joining this organisation will directly help the breed.
Can you imagine your children being eager and excited to get outside on a chilly damp day.
When, despite the bleary eyes, they are enthusiastic and keen to get going. It was easy for the parents of the youngsters staying at the caravan park and cottages this morning.
Families return again and again for this experience, up early and in with the animals to help with the feeding.
All ages can get involved
Experiences like this create cherished memories, these are things that not everyone will get the opportunity to experience.
At Easton Farm Park we aim to provide that close and personal interaction with the animals, where children get to touch, feed and hug the animals in a safe and managed environment.
There was a lot of mooing on the farm this morning!
The calves were separated from their herd today, they were a little stressed this morning and oh boy were they noisy calling out for their mums who were out on the fields.
Later in the afternoon the calves decided to lay in the stables, directly in the sun and chilled out.
