New Arrival

We'd like to announce the arrival of our new Bagot goat kid who arrived on Saturday 8th July and was recently named Gretel.  Her name was chosen from over 100 names suggested by visitors, volunteers and friends following a vote by farm staff and volunteers.  Gretel received the most votes by a narrow margin from Gladys and Geraldine.  Other names in contention were Sparkle, Violet, Brigitte and Domino.  A suggestion of Gisla after the old English name which formed part of an ancient place name Gisla's Dune from which Islington is thought to have been derived was also noted with interest.
