A fabulous family experience for adults and children alike. This is a fully engaging, hands-on experience in the Yorkshire Dales National Park where you will get stuck in and help to look after the different animals on the farm.

Your experience will start with a tour of the estate with Tim, your guide, and a chance to meet the animals who live there.

Depending on the time of year you could help with gathering the sheep, feeding the Highland cows and the South Devon beef herd as well as helping to move the stock.

The pigs will also need feeding and possibly moving and there is always mucking out for the energetic!

Your 3.5-hour farm experience includes tea and cakes or juice for the kids in the onsite, award-winning café.

  • Learn about sheep and the importance of farming to the economy and the sustainable process of farm-to-plate.
