It's a beautiful old farm with lots of old machinery and a but of history, some of the rooms are set out how they would of looked when the farm was in use. I'm sure it use to be a wonderful place but it seems to have fallen into some disrepair! I would benefit having more animals and people demonstrating some of the old machinery! They had 2 cows and 2 pigs of which had around 15 piglets which was lovely to see and the grounds were very pretty. The restaurant and toilet were quite dirty and the restaurant very over priced! Admission was alot for what you get I hope they can bring it back to its former glory!

The visit with the Good Wyf in the old house was so much fun! This farm museum is well-kept and well-explained.

This is an interesting museum to visit. As soon as you go through the main entrance it's surprising how much there is to see. All the exhibits are kept in the old buildings which are set in nice quiet surroundings. Every room tells a different story. I would recommend having a look around this museum. There is also a cafe in the grounds.

A non working farm with some equipment if that is what you like. Worth a visit to see what rural Jersey was about
