TATTON Park will be holding various events this weekend at Home Farm to make visitors aware of the growing number of farm breeds which are considered 'at risk' by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
There will be ridden demonstrations of the farm's shire horses, cooking demonstrations using rare breeds meat by local celebrity chef David Mooney, proprietor of La Belle Epoque, guided tours of the farm and the chance to meet some of the farm's own rare breeds.
Farm co-ordinator Jayne Chapman said: 'Over the years, Home Farm has established a breeding programme of rare animals in an attempt to increase numbers in the country and we feel it is important to educate visitors on the importance of sustaining those numbers.'
The farm will be open from noon to 5pm (last entry 4pm) on the weekend with demonstrations taking places on Saturday. Normal admission applies.
