Rural life at Home Farm

An authentic 1930s working farm

The perfect day out with the `kids', the farm provides a picture of rural life where time has ‘stood still’ since the 1930s and traditional breeds are still resident. With a play trail and animals to feed there is so much to see and do.

Meet the animals

We're awarded Rare Breeds Accreditation by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. We are one of only 17 farm parks in the UK to receive the award which recognises our commitment to the conservation, breeding and promotion of rare/endangered breeds of farm animals.

Feed the animals

There are plenty of things to do for the children. Feed the goats and hens, meet the pigs and donkeys and visit Aunt Mary’s 1930s cottage. The covered play barn has tractor and trailer rides and there are usually new arrivals to say hello to.

Tamara, our 16 month old Tamworth gilt has farrowed her first ever litter of piglets in the early hours on May 6. Tamara truly is one of the gentlest and friendliest pigs in our piggery and she is proving to be the ideal mum. We have three gorgeous new Red Poll calves.
