Howes Creek Farm

Victorian High Country

Sit under a 120-year-old oak tree and enjoy pork pies, terrines, sausages and pâté, all made on-site from Howes Creek's free-range Berkshire pigs. Local wines and craft beers are served with tasting plates, and for self-catering travellers there are plenty of farmgate products to take away. Time a visit for the free farm tour at 11am every Saturday morning.
