Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm

Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm in Suffolk

Baylham House is a working livestock farm which caters for both educational and leisure visits.

The Farm

Baylham House Farm consists of about fifty acres adjacent to the house but not all the land round the house is open to the public as there are woods and wilderness areas which provide food and shelter for wild life and we have a ten acre lake which is stocked and fished by a private fishing club. The animal paddocks are interwoven with a network of paths which enable visitors to meet all the animals, walk along the shady riverbank path or a stretch beside the lake. We have plans to open up a nature trail through one of the wooded wilderness areas and this will hopefully be completed before we open to visitors in 2011. We have an outdoor picnic area and also some outside picnic tables under cover.

The Animals

The livestock we keep at Baylham House Farm mostly belong to breeds that were once common but are now under threat because of the current commercial pressures to produce cheap food. We also keep Highland cattle and Herdwick sheep which are not classified as rare but we keep them just because we like them.

Apart from breeding livestock, Baylham House Farm is managed with the local wildlife in mind with some areas and features provided specifically for their use. There is a wide selection of birds and insects to be seen and the local mammal population is extensive but rarely visible during normal daylight hours.

The Café

The Cafe has earned a reputation for providing delicious home made food at reasonable prices. For later in the afternoon we provide a wide choice of home made cakes and also clotted cream teas with scones and strawberry jam.
