Acton Scott Historic Working Farm

Every afternoon you can see hand milking. Buttermaking takes place in the dairy holidays and weekends.

Children will love the cows, pigs, poultry and sheep in the farmyard and fields. There are Longhorn cattle, Tamworth pigs and Shropshire sheep, amongst the rarer breeds.

Every day you can see milking by hand and butter-making in the dairy. There are weekly visits from the farrier and woodland craftsman together with the blacksmith, wheelwright and resident team members, all of whom are needed to keep the farm working. These demonstrations of rural crafts complete the picture of estate-life a hundred years ago.
