Pigeons Farm in Thorney is to close its doors for good.
The popular farm on Wisbech Road is to close on October 9 following the retirement of owners, Bob and Linda Moore.
Mr and Mrs Moore had found a buyer who intended on continuing the running of the farm, but the deal fell through. A new buyer was found, but the farm will close and animals and equipment will be sold on.
A statement on the farm’s website reads: “Pigeons Farm will close to the public Sunday October 9 2016.
“The farm will be sold soon afterwards. We, Bob and Linda Moore, are retiring and had hoped to sell to a couple who would continue to run the farm as a going concern.

“However, they could not complete and other buyers have now offered. We tried so hard to sell to keep the farm running and to keep all the animals and staff together but this was not to be.
“We have had 10 very happy years here developing it from a derelict farm to a thriving visitor attraction but feel we are ready for an easier life.
