The Farm - Conservation

We are involved in part of an environmental scheme called the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme (HLS), which rewards farmers for managing hedgerows and field boundaries to produce ideal habitats in which wildlife and flora can flourish.

This has involved us in conservation and planting, enhancing around 30 acres of grass meadows to produce outstanding wildflower meadows and creating small areas of ‘owl pasture’ designed to appeal to small mammals, which in turn attract and sustain a thriving owl population.

Schools and members of the public can visit us for educational open days and see first-hand the work that we do to preserve and maintain our countryside.
