Rare Breeds 

As one of the UK’s largest rare breed centres we play a key role in conserving rare and traditional breeds of livestock.

The iconic White Park cattle and traditional Longhorns look at home in the traditional yard. Home Farm is well known for it's Shire Horses, gentle giants that love to say hello to visitors. The Shire horse is a rare breed which is categorised as ‘at risk’ on the rare breed register, which means that there are less than 1,500 breeding females left in the world.

We also have Oxford Sandy and Black pigs, small black and white Bagot goats skipping around the paddock looking for mischief, whilst the rare breeds of sheep are out in the park or paddocks.

Farm Cafe and Toilets

Our farm cafe is currently closed. Toilets, including accessible and family facilities are open in line with Farm opening times. Our picnic area and farm play areas are open.

Don and Jenny's story

At Wimpole Estate, retired farmer Don and his wife Jenny are rediscovering their love of agriculture. Don was diagnosed with dementia five years ago and lost touch with his farming past. But thanks to Jenny and the Farming Memories group she helped set up at Wimpole, Don has found a community that shares his life-long passion.
