Totnes Rare Breeds Farm


Overview

The Totnes Rare Breeds Farm started life as a muddy field and a forest of brambles. After much vision and a tremendous amount of hard work, June 2002 saw the opening of the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm to the public.

In January 2015 Samantha Adams took up the reins. With a fantastic team of volunteer helpers, the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm continues to be a very special place and a joy for all ages.

Look forward to seeing you soon in this little slice of heaven within the Devon countryside!
