Sorry this event is now SOLD OUT

Cotswold Farm Park was the first ‘farm park’ of its kind and was opened by Joe Henson in 1971. Joe had a passion for Rare Breeds Conservation and sharing his knowledge with the public.

Adam Henson (Joe’s son) took on the farm in the late 1990’s and has since developed the farm park further, whilst also using his skills learned at the farm park, engaging and sharing farming knowledge with the public, as a popular TV presenter*. The Farm Park today receives over 100,000 visitors and its core focus is on Rare Breeds Conservation and British Farming. It was the winner of last year’s Jim Keetch Farm Attraction of the Year Award.

On the open day you can learn more about making the most of your farm animals as part of your farm attraction, including activities and demonstrations, educational activities and training and developing staff to help deliver an outstanding customer experience that supports your brand values. Places for this event are limited, please book early to avoid disappointment.

*Please note that Adam is scheduled to be filming on this day and it is unlikely that he will be available to attend.
