About Us


Come on a bee or butterfly walk with us!

As a nature-friendly, organic farm, caring for wildlife is interwoven with everything we do, but there are also some specific opportunities to help support wildlife on the farm. An important way of looking out for our wild neighbours is to understand more about who they are and how they use the farm, so we can make positive changes to the site to make life even sweeter for them (by planting more nectar-rich flowers)!  
Why not join our small but enthusiastic team of survey volunteers - there is no need to have any experience - we are enthusiastic amateurs and have all learnt what we know by having a go! We have an existing pool of enthusiastic wildlife-spotters already on board, but some more keen eyes would be fantastic!

We carry our bumblebee surveys once a month, from March to October, the dates are set in advance, and the surveys only take about an hour to complete. We also survey the butterflies on the farm every week from April to September, again, it takes between 45-90 minutes to complete - and the days and times for this vary each week as we need to pick the sunniest, calmest day each week - which means it's a great way to get involved if you have limited availability or a flexible schedule. The surveys are pretty simple, and your ID skills develop quickly with the easy-to-use materials and our fantastic pair of 'bugnoculars'! The surveys help us to see areas for improvement on the farm, where we can plant extra pollen and nectar-rich flowers; provide extra shelter and nesting sites, or joining up existing 'wildlife corridors' to link abundant areas of the farm. The data is also fed into national surveys, helping to build an overall picture of the health of some of the smaller creatures in our wild family.

If you're interested to find out more, we are looking for more volunteers to start in April, and we're planning a little pre-survey-season meet-up in late March, which could be a great opportunity to come and meet some of the team and see whether it's for you. There's no obligation to commit, or to sign up to getting involved just yet - you'd be very welcome to come along, meet the other volunteers and give it a go.
