The Baynesfield Estate Museum is made up of a few different sites, giving you a look at the life of Yorkshire born Joseph Bayne who was a Byrne Settler and who founded the Baynesfield Estate museum. During his life as an enthusiastic and hard working agriculturist, he accumulated many farms now known as Baynesfield Esate.
He developed the dairy industry and put the bacon curing industry on steady feet. Here you can see the original refrigeration room used on the estate and the dairy museum displaying an array of interesting artifacts all inside the original butter factory which was built in 1899.
Explore the Vintage Tractor and Machinery club and cast your eyes on some extraordinary collections. Why not step back in time and walk through the old cheese factory now used to show off an array of items. The original farmhouse is now an Antique Woodwork club where you can see demonstrations with historic wood working tools. There is so much to see and lots to be learnt.
