Dumble Farm is situated in the small village of Arram in rural East Yorkshire. It is a short drive away from the attractive and historic market town of Beverley, well worth a visit for people travelling from outside the area. East Yorkshire itself is known for its rolling hills, long sandy beaches, little villages with cosy pubs and wide open countryside.
Dumble Farm is grassland, dotted with areas of ponds and trees and crossed with hedges, it lies in the wide river Hull valley. The farm was until early 2022 a dairy farm, but as the land is in the floodplain, the low lying position makes it prone to flooding. In recent years the flooding has been exacerbated by climate change and increased pressure on the drainage system, this made dairying unsustainable. Dumble Farm needed a change of direction. The nature and position of the land made it a potential haven for wetland birds, plants and insects. The farm is now running a large scale conservation project, you can learn all about it when you visit the farm plus in our 'About' and 'Conservation Project' sections on the website About | Dumble Farm | Arram Conservation Project | Dumble Farm wildlife habitat creation

Activities will still go ahead in light rain but if it's raining heavily we may be able to postpone the activity until later. Please call for advice before you leave home on days of bad weather.
Dumble Farm is open all year round, Dates for all our different experiences are added a month in advance, and the experiences on offer may vary throughout the year.

Places for our hands-on experiences are limited and only take place a few times a week, so tickets often sell out very quickly.
