Can you help us design the farms of the future at the National Museum of Rural Life?


Enjoy activities inspired by our historic working farm and find out what we’ll be growing, cooking and eating in the year 2050. Discover how foods of the future can be reformulated to be healthier, and explore some unusual future foods such as edible insects!

You can also help make toys for the Tamworth pigs and learn about Carnevale, a research project focused on enriching the lives of pigs.
