Ryedale Folk Museum

Ryedale Folk Museum
The whole site explores the links between the living crops, the natural world, historic objects and the landscape. Just what did farmers do before herbicides? How were animals traced before the microchip? And why do people put rings in pigs’ noses? Highfields is the latest development at the museum. The fields have rare breed pigs, Light Sussex hens, sheep, old varieties of vegetables and the Cornfield Flower Project. Here at the Ryedale Folk Museum, we work closely with teachers to ensure a memorable learning experience for children. We provide a unique ‘hands-on’ practice located within the rescued historical buildings from around the Ryedale area. We provide an authentic understanding of traditional ways of life ranging from the construction of a Cruck framed house in the Elizabethan Manor House to making bread, butter and vegetable stew in Crofter’s Cottage.
