Masham, North Yorkshire
Take part in a farm adventure with a twist at Hill Top Farm in Masham. The company allows people to experience being a farmer for the day in true Yorkshire style.
With so much greenery and fresh air, the farm is a perfect break from the stresses of city life. Rob, Laura and their friendly team will give you a warm welcome on arrival, and the fun starts from there.
Activities you can try include driving the iconic green and yellow John Deere tractor around 180 acres of rural farmland. Depending on the package you choose, you could be learning how to hitch up the trailer, manoeuvre around, and load straw bales. Farmer Steve will be on hand so you can ask any questions you may have.
If you and your group want to have a day out completing a range of farm-based activities, ‘The Ultimate Farmer’ experience is ideal. Traditional farming jobs like sheep gathering and tractor driving are included.
The organised team also arrange hilarious farm-based fun and games such as welly wanging, farm Olympics, and egg throwing. You can even try pig herding so make sure you bring wellies and old clothes!
A tasty BBQ with locally produced meats and vegetarian options can be added on to packages. There are also accommodation options if you want a longer stay. This can be in one of the two bunk barns which sleep 30 in total, or for a more luxurious stay there is a 12-bed holiday cottage.
