The gates to the Cotswold Farm Park are opened to the public, the first of its kind in the world. John Neave had done all of the fencing, water laying and building. Joe’s wife, Gill served drinks from a mobile caravan.

Joe hoped that the Farm Park would help to publicise the work of rare breeds survival, and the admission charges would help pay to maintain the breeding groups at the farm.
