When Joe Henson threw open the gates to his farm in 1971 and began the Cotswold Farm Park story, he did so to preserve our rare breed farm animals and educate the public about them. The Rare Breeds Through History trail is a continuation of his hard work. Be transported back through time as you walk around the paddocks, learning all about the introduction of each breed as you go. Learn More…
