Conservation

We have been growing bird seed and nectar and pollen mixes for the past few years, and now we are in the Higher Level Stewardship scheme we can do more for the wildlife, with more field margins for the habitats for small mammals and insects which will provide food for the hedgerow birds, Barn Owls and the Raptors.

There are two woodland ponds, one of which holds dragon flies and three species of newts, and there are plans to restore a dewpond on the farm. We are planning to plant a small area of woodland and a new hedge where once there had been a woodland edge before the woodland was cleared 50 years ago.
