Cambridge University Farm, Park FarmMadingley, CB23 8YW

This event is now fully booked. We are operating a waitlist and you can join this via the Eventbrite booking link.

Join us for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Cambridge University Farm. The farm includes a dairy herd and sheep flock kept to provide clinical training for students at the Vet School, and an anaerobic digester producing electricity from slurry produced by the dairy cows.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see the animals, machinery and AD plant on a guided tour led by staff working on the farm as well as learn about milk production, animal health as well as woodland and parkland management.

To your average passer-by Cambridge University Farm may look like your usual farm, complete with over 200 cows and a similar number of sheep, but there’s far more to this farm than meets the eye. The history of the Farm stretches back to 1900 when it was established in Impington, but in recent years the Farm has experienced more than just a relocation – it’s been busy making impressive changes and commitments through a new Sustainability Policy.

You can read more about sustainability at the farm here -

PLEASE NOTE: The University Farm is not located on Huntingdon Road. Please use post code CB23 8YW to find us in Madingley. - This is a working farm children must be supervised at all times.
