Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, near Stowmarket, reopens following closure due to suspected E. coli cases





A Suffolk petting farm has reopened after being forced to close due to visitors becoming ill.

Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, near Stowmarket, shut its doors in at the end of April after it was linked to suspected cases of E.coli.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said it was aware of possible Shiga Toxin E.coli (STEC), or Cryptosporidium cases and provided infection prevention and control advice to the farm.
