Acton Scott Working Farm

Acton Scott Historic Working Farm

Description:

Acton Scott Historic Working Farm is one of Britain's leading working farm museums and is situated in the 18th century Home Farm of the Acton Scott Estate. Conceived by Thomas Acton more than a generation ago to keep alive the 19th century farming practices he grew up with, the farm was the first of its kind and has been much copied since. Today, we specialise in practical demonstrations of historic farming using traditional skills and period horse-drawn machines. You can see farm life unfold on the land, around the farm yard and in the cottage with each day being rounded off with milking by hand.

Acton Scott Historic Working Farm is open from Friday 30 March until Sunday 4 November 2018, 10am to 4:30pm.
