A true Wensleydale experience - life as a farmer on the Swinithwaite estate, home of the Thornton-Berry family since 1925.
A fun and engaging hands-on experience in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Our 3.5-hour farm experience provides a comprehensive tour of our farm, estate and animals. Start the tour with a traditional, hearty English Breakfast of fresh local produce or cream tea in an award-winning café. Then spend the day feeding the animals, gathering sheep, moving the stock, and taking a close look at our traditional drystone walls.
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!
