We actively encourage a wide range of wildlife by providing varied undisturbed habitats on the farm with a multitude of wild flowers, berry & seed bearing plants and trees. A natural, spring fed, stream runs through our valley and feeds our small lake that is home to various native fish and ducks. 2020 will be the first year we are working with a local bee keeper to expand the number of his hives. He has set up eight hives at the top of our valley field. We look forward to being able to supply honey to our guests in the future. We collaborate with the Bat Trust to support, with their work to conserve the Horseshoe Bat population. Our orchard is key to this and we have embarked on a renovation programme to ensure that our apple and pear trees continue to flourish. In January 2020 The Bat Trust gave us 250 hedgerow trees to create a new hedge line that will provide additional shelter for bats, other wildlife and our own animals.
