Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse
At Gressenhall Farm, Suffolk Punch horses work the farm. Throughout the seasons they play a central role in planting, harvesting and ploughing.
Gressenhall’s farm was once used to grow produce for the inmates at the workhouse. Today we use the farm to demonstrate traditional farming techniques to visitors. In the St Nicholas’ Barn are displays of farming implements from the last 200 years. You can also peek into the lives of the wild birds and animals who live at Gressenhall with our nature watch cameras. Explore the farm with our circular walks. Explore what’s growing in the fields or take a stroll down to the river. Keep the whole family entertained with a free stamper trail available from the museum shop. We also run short courses for people who would like to learn more about working with Heavy Horses. At Gressenhall Farm, Suffolk Punch horses work the farm.
