Forty Farms Exhibition

16th September 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4th January 2023 @ 5:30 pm


In March 2021, British Life Photographer of the Year Amy Bateman embarked on a journey to record the stories of Forty Farms in the Lake District and Cumbria.

From the Herdwick-grazed Lake District commons to the big-sky Solway marshes; from isolated farmsteads unchanged in generations to businesses at the cutting-edge of innovation; from world-class sheep breeders to award-winning cheese-makers, the Forty Farms exhibition is a visual record of farming at a period of profound change.

Forty Farms offers a unique insight into the everyday lives, fears and hopes of 40 extraordinary farmers, through photography, film and words.

Free admission. Open daily 9am-5.30pm.
