Bee keeping at Tatton Park

Field to Fork

Cheshire East is blessed with a wide range of award-winning tourism destinations and in 2016 we welcomed a record 16 million visitors – generating £895m in income for the local economy.

We have a long-standing aspiration to help create a visitor economy worth £1 billion by 2020. Helping us to do that are attractions such as Tatton Park, in Knutsford.

The park is one of our eight Green Flag award-winning sites and is launching an exciting project called ‘Field to Fork’.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are delivering this ground-breaking project which brings to life Tatton Park’s farm’s fascinating heritage – its buildings and machinery, the people who lived and worked there, the farming practices and animals reared over the centuries.

You’ll be able to view spaces never before seen by the public, such as the impressive three-storey mill and enjoy guided tours, live demonstrations and interactive models.There’ll also be the opportunity to take part in traditional agricultural skills such as horse ploughing and bee keeping.
