We are a 300 acre High Nature Status Farm, rented from the National Trust. Nicci and I took over the farm in February 2017 and in the short time we have been here we absolutely love it! In the summer it's buzzing with wildlife, wild flowers and butterflies.
The video gives you a snapshot of the farm,who we are and what we do.
The farm is in a higher level stewardship scheme. We have native breed Pedigree Dexter cattle, selling boxed beef direct off farm, also a flock of 250 ewes.
Our wildflower meadows are bursting with colour in early summer, full of bee's, butterflies and grasshoppers. They are also full of herbs for livestock to graze and to make hay for winter feed.
We sow bird seed plots to help feed the farmland bird through the winter.
We have 4 large areas of woodland around the farm that the National Trust manage. They are home to Roe Deer, Foxes, Badgers, Dormice, Buzzards and Red Kites.
From the top of the farm you can see the Malvern Hills, Cotswold escarpment, The Black Mountains, The Brecon Beacon and the Wye Valley below.
The landscape and the fields on the farm have been largely unchanged for over a 100 years.
We grow crops of Oats, Wheat, Barley and Beans for animal feed and bedding. We make hay and round bale silage. Meaning we don't rely on bought in feed.
