Home Farm and Myton Stud Farm have been farmed by the Ramsden family since 1928. Once part of the Myton Estate, the farms can trace their history from the reign of Charles 1. The existing buildings at Home Farm date back to 1870 conforming to a model farm design. Model farms were constructed to increase food production for the industrial population incorporating industrial technology such as steam engines and railways. Myton Stud Farm was again built in 1870. It was originally built to accommodate Morgan trotting ponies. In the latter part of the 18th century it became home to Myton Home Estate private hunt. During the 1st World War 9000 horses passed through the stables. The Ramsdens endorse environmentally friendly farming having recently entered into the Higher Level Scheme.
