Community Farm

Wythenshawe Community Farm is a registered charity (charity number 515619). It was set up in 1984 and has become one of the most popular facilities at the Park.

The farm is open seven days a week, from 11:30am to 4pm during April to October and from 11:30am to 3pm during November to March.

Please note, occasionally the farm may close for training or maintenance, please call the offoce on 0161 946 0726 for advice. 

The Farm is located next to the children's play area and children a chance to learn about where food comes from, and all the elements of a working countryside farm in an urban setting.

As well as cows, sheep, goats, pigs, ducks and horses, we have a prize-winning herd of Hereford cattle. Our extensive breeding programme means that baby animals are often on site. Visitors can 'meet' the animals and (if they're lucky) can see feeding time (this is usually around 3pm but times and availability may vary).

Historically fruit and vegetables were grown in the garden to supply the Tatton family at the Hall, and the farm recently won funding to open its own shop, where they now sell a range of locally produced food including meat, their own seasonal vegetables, and eggs from the hens on site.

As well as just visiting the farm, youngsters can also become a Junior Farmer for the day. For more details please ask at the Farm Office or call 0161 946 0726.
