Zoos may be closed to the public, but that won’t stop a Norfolk farm from connecting hundreds of families to its cute animals.
After a brilliant response to picture and video updates on social media, Wroxham Barns have started weekly Facebook lives, taking families on tours of their farm to feed the animals, see tricks and learn facts.
General manager, Ben Marshall, said: “It was such a sad but necessary decision to close our doors whilst the country and world battle the coronavirus.

“We tried a 30 minute Facebook Live tour of our farm, so that families and children can feel part of the routine and meet all the animals.
“I was blown away by the response and that over 550 people were watching the video live and asking lots of questions.
“I’m so pleased we’re able to offer some light and smiles in these otherwise quite gloomy times.”
Wroxham Barns will now host two Facebook lives a week, every Tuesday at 8.30am and every Saturday at 4pm.
