Working Farm

Escape to the country and get close to nature on a working farm in Cumbria - The Lake District. Take part in farm life; watch the animals being fed and cows being milked, enjoy lambing time in the spring and gather your own succulent fruit from hedgerows on a farm trail - the perfect way to sample the cream of the crop and savour the taste of the country down on the farm.

The traditional foods and flavours of the county have evolved from the land itself and have established Cumbria as a leading source of quality local produce. Dairy cattle and the indigenous Herdwick sheep have been raised on the lower slopes of the Cumbrian fells for generations - contributing to the distinctive character of the local farming landscape and farm produced foods.

Cumbria - The Lake District is a significant provider of the nation's best dairy produce, Herdwick lamb and beef whilst retaining large areas of wildlife importance. Organic cheeses, butter and ice-cream, traditionally produced cured meats, game, fish, organic fruits and vegetables are all part of the traditional Cumbrian farmhouse menu.
