Rare Breeds Department
This is our newest department, created in August 2007 in
response to the fantastic and ever-expanding Rare Breeds Centre
located on the farm adjacent to the Training Centre. The department
provides a great opportunity for the trainees to get close to these
amazing creatures combining hard work, responsibility and exercise
with enormous amounts of fun.
Work in the Rare Breeds Department is very much a hands-on
experience for the trainees on how the animals on the farm are
cleaned and cared for. For this the department needs to work
closely with the Farm manager's team who operate the rare breed
The department cleans the pens for all the animals, changing the
hay and feed in the goat's pens, changing and caring for the
rabbits, clearing the chicken and turkey hutches, mucking out the
pigsties and everything in between.
