Farm Experiences

A true Wensleydale experience - life as a farmer on the Swinithwaite estate, home of the Thornton-Berry family since 1925.

Farm Experiences

A fun and engaging hands-on experience in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Start the tour with a traditional, hearty English Breakfast of fresh local produce or lunch in an award winning cafe. Then spend the day taking a close look at traditional drystone walls, feeding the animals, gathering sheep and learning about how sheep are farmed.

As part of the experience you will help feed the Highland cattle and the South Devon beef herd as well as help to move the stock depending on the time of year. 

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

  • Experience stunning views in Wensleydale in the heart of the National Park.
  • The chance to experience life as a farmer!
  • Learn about sheep and the important of farming to our economy and the sustainable process of farm-to-plate.
