Field to Fork is a £1.3million Heritage Lottery funded project that aims to inspire visitors, young and old, by telling the story of the journey of our food from field to fork.
It brings to life the Farm’s fascinating heritage – the buildings and machinery, the people who lived and worked there, the farming practices and animals reared over hundreds of years - showing how farming can help improve our lives today and in the future.
Featuring real life characters leading guided tours, an augmented reality 360 degree app, interactive models, demonstrations, learning courses, and more, the project has seen many previously closed buildings – such as the Mill and Slaughterhouse – restored and open to the public for the first time in over thirty years.
Visitors are able to take part in traditional agricultural skills such as horse ploughing, cheese-making and hedge-laying and learn about the history and care of all the fascinating rare breed animals
The newly opened three-storey Mill houses a number of original machines from past centuries including the steam engine, winnower, hammer mill and chaff cutter. Visitors are able to go on a guided tour with the Miller and watch these intriguing machines at work.
The Slaughterhouse sensitively presents the realities of meat production, so that visitors understand the variety of different meat cuts available as well as the importance of good animal husbandry to meat quality and healthy eating.
Field to Fork has been made possible by funding and support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the WREN FCC Community Action Fund, the Tatton Park Charitable Trust, Cheshire East Council and the National Trust.
