About Occombe Farm

 

Occombe Farm is a working farm in Paignton, South Devon. Bring your group along to explore a 2km nature trail bursting with wildlife, visit a bird hide, bake in our cookery school, learn in a yurt, experience a wartime garden and Anderson shelter and meet cows, sheep, alpacas, chickens and ducks!

Education activities can be run from our Cookery School or Yurt and we offer a number of Ranger-led sessions, all linked to the English National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 & 2.

Our on-site café serves delicious, locally sourced food throughout the day.

Occombe Farm is cared for by Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust, a registered charity that exists to protect and care for over 1750 acres of Torbay’s stunning green and coastal spaces, including Berry Head, Cockington Country Park and many others
