About us

This website is mainly written from my personal viewpoint. It is about our experience conserving wildlife and protecting the environment on a working farm. I do not claim to have particular expertise in farming or wildlife conservation, but on the farm we have made many attempts to combine the two. We are not a showcase of best practice, we are a work in progress.

This website describes some of the thinking behind what we’ve done, the successes and failures, and the continuing process of learning. I am very interested in hearing from anyone with comments on this or stories of their own experiences, especially if these can add to or improve what we are doing at Abbey Farm.

‘The Farm’ gives general background information about Abbey Farm.
