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.

Throughout the season there are special events organised on highdays and holidays along with our ever-popular harvest celebrations and threshing weekends towards the end of our year. See below for events and dates:

Friday 18 to Monday 21 April
Easter on the Farm
Easter’s the theme with chick handling and lambs to feed. Young visitors will love the Cracking Egg Challenge (Friday), Egg-ceptional Quiz (Saturday) and Easter Egg Hunts (Sunday). Monday offers foolish fun …. as you’d egg-spect!

Saturday 3 to Monday 5 May                                                                                             Models and more

Saturday 24 to Monday 26 May                                                                                               May Music, Fun and Games

Saturday 26 – Sunday 27 July
Horses, Harness, Wheels and Wagons
A weekend where our own shires are joined by visiting horses. See our splendid horse drawn vehicles and marvel at the work of the Guild of Model wheelwrights.

Saturday 23 to Monday 26 August                                                                                 Wonderful Wood Weekend

Saturday 21 – Sunday 22 September
Harvest Weekend
An iconic time on any farm, see preparations being made on Saturday for the procession at 3pm on Sunday.

Saturday 25 -  Sunday 26 October
Saturday 1 - Sunday 2 November
Steam Threshing Weekends
This most evocative of events brings our season to a close. There’s an extra special atmosphere on the farm at threshing time.

To avoid disappointment, if you are hoping to see a particular craft demonstration on the day of your visit, or a special event, please call in advance to check the programme.
