Cogges Manor Farm, Witney Open
22nd March – 2nd November 2014
Don your wellies as Witney's popular farmstead throws open the big red gates this spring with the new season launch on Saturday 22nd March 2014.
Cogges opening day will offer a taste of what is to come over the year, with fun activities for families and visitors from food to gardening, farm animals and rural crafts in the picturesque setting of West Oxfordshire’s historic Cotswold manor house and grounds.
The season launch celebrates a successful year in 2013, as Cogges Hertitage Trust, the charity that manages the farm, has been nominated for the West Oxfordshire Business Awards 2014 in the Blenheim Palace Rural Business category.
That’s not the only good news – Cogges is also enjoying international attention as Yew Tree Farm on the BBC1 drama Downton Abbey, after filming took place in the grounds for several episodes in Season Four!
