Discovery Farm

Stroll back in time and uncover a way of life on the farms of 100 years ago. Through their daily tasks, meet the people who lived on the land and looked after the animals. There was always plenty for everyone to do – and it’s still the same today!

Roll up your sleeves to help feed the hens as they wander around the yard, meet the donkeys as they greet you at the fence or have a taste of what’s cooking in the farmhouse kitchen. Try your hand at turnip-cutting, watch traditional farm machinery in action or have a go at rope making. Follow one of our trails and experience it all at Discovery Farm.
