The farm at Tatton Park
The perfect day out with the 'kids', the farm offers 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's so much to see and do.
The ‘Field to Fork’ story
With an investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2018, the heritage farm is at the heart of the Field to Fork story and we’ve opened up new areas of the farm not previously seen by visitors.
There’s now even more to see and do including:
• Exploring the impressive 18th-century mill – find out more on a guided tour and watch the historic machinery in action
• Meeting farm workers from the past and present, like Aunt Mary making butter in the 1930s Caretaker’s Cottage
• Watching fascinating demonstrations of traditional farming skills such as milking and hedge laying
• Discovering the original slaughterhouse – learn how slaughter was carried out in the past and about good animal husbandry today. (Please note that this part of the experience is optional).
