Fiona’s father bought the farm in 1975 and has transformed it into an amazingly eco friendly organic environment. He is passionate about the land and wildlife and this has definitely been passed on to Fiona. He has sourced various natural springs whose water, via various filter systems, has kept the family and animals going for the past 45 years.
Our farm is a member of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme which is very important to us. We have preserved hedgerows for wildlife, coppiced, planted oaks and ash in our ancient woodland and controlled invasive species, created 2 large ponds for wildlife, and much more to ensure the well being of our land and animals.
We also have a bird expert who visits regularly putting up nests to encourage rare birds. This has been a huge success.
We have had regular visits from FWAG (the Farm and Wildlife Advisory Group) and also the Forestry Commission to advise us and to make sure that we are doing the best that we can.
Our farm is also right in the middle of the Blackdown Hills which is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We would love to be able to welcome you to our farm so that you too can share in it’s beauty, and that of the surrounding area.
