Opened in 1975, Dairyland Farm World Limited was the brainchild of the late Mr Rex Davey who combined an agricultural farming memorabilia collection together with the opening of a new rotary milking parlour and viewing gallery, thus creating one of the first, if not the first, farm diversification tourist attractions in the country. Over the last 40+ years, Dairyland has grown into a national award winning farm Park.

This sale will give the new owners the opportunity to drive the attraction forward into a new era.
