Temple Newsam Home Farm

The new School of Land and Animal Sciences will be based at Temple Newsam in Leeds, on its Home Farm which is a working rare breeds farm. Temple Newsam lies within 1,500 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens which are overlooked by the stunning Tudor-Jacobean mansion. 

Home Farm, with its grade II listed barn built in 1694, is the largest working rare breeds farm in Europe and nationally it’s one of only 16 approved by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. Breeds include Gloucester, Kerry, Irish Moiled, Red Poll, White Park, British White, Beef Shorthorn, Vaynol and Belted Galloway cattle; with Kerry Hill, Whitefaced Woodland and Portland sheep, and Golden Guernsey goats. 

The farm, house, extensive gardens, and parklands are open to the public (admission fees apply) from Tuesday to Sunday, until 4pm in the winter and 5pm in the summer. Enjoy the tea rooms and the on-site shop that open all year round excluding Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
