FARMING MATTERS

23 MARCH – 31 OCTOBER 2020

This season’s major exhibition explores and celebrates farming in the South Hams both in the past and today. Farming has been a vital part of South Hams life for hundreds of years, and continues to shape the landscape every day. Find out about yesterday’s farmers and what has changed for them today – and what might change for them and us in the future.
