We host daily demonstrations giving a flavour of farm life at the turn of the 20th Century. The farm bailiff and the bailiff's wife will be around the farmyard and cottage carrying out everyday tasks and interpreting Victorian farm life.

New this year: hand-milking demonstrations and our newly refurbished 1943 Fordson tractor - the only tractor on the farm.

Look out for our themed weekends too, which we'll promote here and on Twitter and Facebook

Throughout the season there are special events organised on high days and holidays along with our ever-popular harvest celebrations and threshing weekends towards the end of our year.
