Bowthorpe Park Farm is a family farm in South Lincolnshire and home to the Bowthorpe Oak the UKs Largest Girthed Oak Tree. A traditional family farm with livestock and crops all produced to high farm assured and welfare standards.
We open our farm gates to the public throughout the summer for visitors to see the famous Oak, the farm animals and enjoy some fantastic events, giving you a real insight to a working farm and some truly memorable experiences, see our what’s on page for more info.
Our traditional breeds of livestock including Pedigree Lincoln Red cattle, Jacob sheep and Berkshire pigs are all home reared and extensively managed. The animals roam the stunning countryside grazing new and ancient pastures. From field to fork our fully traceable slow maturing farm assured meat with provenance is available to purchase from our online shop or from the farm during opening times.
We love where we work and are always striving to improve the natural environment, areas of fallow for wild birds, large field margins, installing bird boxes, new hedge and tree planting are just some of the ways we are improving the natural habitat on the farm
