Autumn scene at Tatton Park

Plan your autumn adventures - visits need to be pre-booked with arrival times.

Meet the Farm Team

The Farm team of 2019

A team of six care for the animals and historic site at Tatton’s Home Farm, ably assisted by a number of dedicated volunteers. Led by Farm Manager, Jayne Chapman, the team are passionate about the farm’s rare breed status and the welfare of the animals. 

Each team member has their own area of interest and expertise and takes responsibility for a particular livestock: cattle, sheep, horses, poultry or pigs, to name just a few.  They also all ‘muck in’ (so to speak!) with the other essential tasks which help to make the farm one of the most-loved attractions at Tatton Park.

The Farm has appeared on a number of radio and TV programmes, including Countryfile and ‘live lambing’ for BBC North West Tonight.

Become a Farm volunteer

The Farm has a small group of volunteers who work in a variety of roles around the Farm. More recently we have opportunities to help out in a living history role, engaging with our visitors as 'Aunt Mary' churning butter in her 1940's cottage, Land Army girl Nancy Pringle explaining milking in Shippon, working with our Shire horses as a Teamsman or organising the busy estate as the Land Agent - especially during school holidays and weekends when we are busiest.
