We take our stewardship of the countryside very seriously and ensure our activities enhance the environment.

We have over 57 kilometres of hedges on the farm, occupying over 20 acres of land and our farm is bordered by many hundreds of acres of woodland and parkland. We have 30 acres of maintained area for wildlife and we leave 150 acres of land untilled overwinter to assist the skylark and other birds and insects.

We maintain a special area for Perfoliate Pennycress more commonly known as "Cotswold Pennycress", a high risk species facing extinction and only found on 14 sites in the UK.

Oxford University Wildlife Conservation Research Unit have been conducting a moth survey to establish how modern farming has been impacting on the species. The results have been tremendously exciting and our farm has been identified as a valuable habitat. The species "Pale Shining Brown" is only found on one other location in the UK and was thought to be almost extinct.
