Overlooking the Clyst Valley, our farmland is surrounded by unique wetlands, which are perfect for carbon-storing, and create habitats for our local wildlife.

During the winter months, we raise water levels of the same area that the cattle graze which helps to stimulate bio-diversity and to encourage migratory wildlife to flock and flourish.
