Welcome to the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, a thriving 16 acre site with events and activities throughout the year. The Yorkshire Museum of Farming is a great attraction for families  and Schools.

It is with much sadness that The Yorkshire Museum of Farming announces the passing of Flt Lt Jeffrey de Goat.

Jeffrey arrived at Murton Park in 2000, after being orphaned, and for 14 years he was a favourite of staff and visitors alike.

Jeffrey had an illustrious career as the official mascot of 609 Squadron RAF Leeming and beloved member of the Yorkshire Museum of Farming team, and will be sadly missed by staff, volunteers, members of his RAF squadron and the public.

RIP Jeffrey
