The Farm at Suffolk Rural

On behalf of Suffolk New College, we want to welcome you to our fabulous farm at our rural campus. We aim to provide visitors of all ages with an exciting experience that is both fun and educational, from our products to our incredible technology and, of course, our animals. We also pride ourselves on maintaining sustainability within our farming facilities, reusing and recycling as many products as possible within our facilities while also operating in the most environmentally friendly ways possible.
