National Park Experiences – The Ingram Valley Farm Safari

Discover a world of adventure aboard our Ingram Valley Farm Tractor & Trailer Express and travel back through time for this epic journey. Your immersion into the past 12,000 years starts here where the glaciers of the last ice age melted away to reveal a beautiful tundra landscape with deer and wild cattle. In recent times red deer have been re-inroduced to the farm and the cattle once again graze the hilltops. Immerse yourself into 6,000 years of farming history as we take you chapter by chapter through myth, legend and the history of England’s largest scheduled ancient monument at Ingram Valley Farm.

Details

As we meet and greet in the beautifully restored c.200 year old farm yard you will feel enveloped by the sound of the hustle and bustle of the farm and nature all around. Meet under the roman numerals at the farm central range. The farm journey starts here with your experienced tour guide Patrick from Footsteps in Northumberland joined by a member of the Wilson family, whose family has been farming here since 1949.

Join aboard the Ingram Valley Farm Tractor & Trailer Express to help celebrate what has shaped this part of the world over a millenia and beyond to learn about how the deer, sheep and cattle play a key role in conserving and managing this special place.

Enjoy a walk around the farm and a locally sourced picnic lunch provided by the local Ingram Café. This can be enjoyed whilst out and about, or if necessary, in the eco Ingram Village Hall. (Please let us know of any dietary requirements in advance).
