Acton Scott Working Farm Museum

Acton Scott Working Farm is set in the beautiful rural countryside of Shropshire in the village of Acton Scott near Church Stretton. The area lies in the Shropshire Hills which are an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Farm, which featured in the BBC series Victorian Farm, is a wonderful visitor attraction and family day out. The 300 acre Acton Scott Historic Working Farm is set in the 1,500 acre estate of the Acton family who have worked it since the 12th century. The farm specialises in preserving traditional ways of farming and the Acton’s lovingly preserve this history and heritage. At the farm visitors can take part in churning butter, hand-milking and herding cows as well as wheel and brick making. Visitors of all ages will love the Longhorn and Shorthorn cattle, Tamworth pigs, Shropshire sheep, poultry, ducks, geese and heavy horses.
