Farms

Currently eleven farm sites fall under the umbrella of the wetland project, each being subject Higher Level Stewardship Agreements which feature wetland options. The majority of these areas are termed ‘wet grassland’, which means the fields have seasonal wet features winter until late spring, but tend to dry out in summer and autumn. In total over 2000 hectares of farmland are managed under HLS of which 330 hectares are ‘wetland’ options. Below are short profiles of each farm within the project. (Please note that these are restoration schemes on private farmland so public access is limited to the network of public rights of way. To enquire about access contact the Project Officer.)
