Agriculture

The Agriculture gallery traces the history of arable farming and considers a future of genetically modified food. From the ploughs and hoes of the Middle Ages to the combine harvesters and balers of the 20th century, this gallery presents a fascinating collection of original machinery and superb scale models. Find out about dibblers, seed drills, clod-crushers and junglebusters, and see how the working life of an arable farm changes as the seasons unfold. Examine an original Ferguson tractor and operate a cut-away combine harvester yourself. Visit the Agriculture gallery for a fascinating insight into the history and future of farming.
