Looking to entertain the family this Easter Holiday, or interested in the real work behind some of Devon’s great local produce? A visit to Old Parsonage Farm could be the perfect Easter activity.

Spend an hour and a half on the farm getting to know all about our dairy goats and purebred herd of friendly Jersey cows as part of our Milking Experience. For those after a more in-depth experience, Farmer For the Day will have you up at the crack of dawn to join John and Lynne for a full day at Old Parsonage Farm.

How about Goat Yoga – no kidding! That’s right, at Old Parsonage Farm you can experience one of the latest Yoga crazes, not only do you get the usual Yoga benefits, but you exercise your laughter muscles at the same time. Run by Simply Soulful, Goat Yoga is available on selected dates.

Don’t forget to pick up some Ice Cream, Milk or Goats Kefir produced at Dartington Dairy for a taste experience as well!
