£210.00 FOR 2 PEOPLE

Wensleydale
Suitable for 2 people
3.5 hours

A fantastic experience for anyone interested in local farming or with aspirations to set up a small holding of their own. This is a fully engaging, hands-on experience in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park where you will have the opportunity to learn more about caring for the animals on the farm including Highland cattle, British breed pigs, goats, chickens and the South Devon beef herd.

Your 3.5-hour farm experience starts with a few jobs on the farm followed by a traditional, hearty English Breakfast in the onsite, award-winning café. You’ll get a chance to chat about what you’d like to get from the experience and ask any questions.

The experience will be led by the jobs that need doing on the farm that day together with what you are most interested in but could include feeding the animals, gathering the sheep, and working with the traditional drystone walls on the estate.

As part of the experience, you will also help feed the Highland cattle as well as help to move the stock depending on the time of year.

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

What to expect from your farm experience:

  • Experience stunning views in Wensleydale in the heart of the National Park. No visit is ever the same!
  • The chance to experience life as a farmer and learn about the practicalities and legalities of keeping livestock.
  • Learn about sheep and the importance of farming to the economy and the sustainable process of farm-to-plate.
  • Meet the gentle giants on the farm and finding out more about keeping Highland cattle.
  • A thoroughly fun and educational experience packed with fascinating anecdotes about the farm and local area and helpful advice about small batch farming.
