What is ethically green?
Farming with nature
Our farm is our lifeblood. We have always farmed in such a way that is positive for the landscape and wildlife. We have farmed under the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme and now we have started the exciting process of re-wilding.
We consider carefully all aspects of how we live and farm including how much energy we consume and where we source things from.
This is our family’s farm, it has been with us for generations. It is our home and we have filled it with love – our love of nature and of farming. Thirty years ago, when we started having visitors stay, we always wanted to provide more than a holiday.
Our children and grandchildren have grown up with guests from all over the globe, visiting our beautiful part of the world, away from the hustle and bustle.
We run a working farm with stock managing our fields. Our commitment to providing good local food is as strong as our commitment to nature.
We are passionate about farming with nature. Our landscape is deep in our bones and all that lives upon it is important to us. We are committed to providing space for wildlife, which is why you won’t see manicured grass around the camping pitches and why we allow space for nature all around our farm.
Rare breeds of sheep are fed on our wildflower rich meadows and indigenous Galloway and Blue Grey cattle can be seen grazing our land.
Since we married, we have planted over 3000 trees on our land, filling out our hedgerows and providing shelter belts to our stock and wildlife alike.
