It contains a wide range of machinery and equipment used on farms, from heavy equipment such as a cider press to hand tools. The designs of equipment such as wagons  (which were not used here until the 17th century) are influenced by the narrow lanes and steep hills of the South Hams, and were built in local engineering workshops.

The Farm Gallery was built in 1975.
