The farm is far more than a visitor attraction and has a fascinating history that can be traced back to the Domesday survey of 1086. Since 1964, the 50-acre site has been run as a charity by the William Scott Abbott Trust with the aim of providing an agricultural education for everyone, from school children to heritage enthusiasts. The charity also owns the wider 550 acres of Sacrewell Farm.
