White Post Farm, Farnsfield, reopens after feared hundreds of animals could have faced uncertain future due to coronavirus




The gates to one of Nottinghamshire's most-loved farms have reopened after it was feared hundreds of animals could face an uncertain future because of coronavirus.

White Post Farm, Farnsfield — popular with youngsters and parents as an educational tool — closed months ago as it ran desperately short of funds to cover its £5,000-a-month feed bill, general utilities and staff wages. An appeal was launched to help it survive.

Now, with the government's go-ahead and social distancing guidelines in place, the farm has already reopened to annual pass holders — but general ticket holders will have to wait until Saturday.

To control the number of visitors to the park, the farm is releasing tickets daily — so check online regularly for new dates and times.
