Still available in 2022

This was our major exhibition in 2020, and 2022 will be the last chance to see it. It 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.
