Birds & Wildlife
The Farm has a high and varied level
of wildlife and biodiversity. Hedges
are only cut on a 3 year
and only between November and
February to provide berry crops -
vital food for mammals and birds.
Wide wildlife corridors are left to
provide links to different habitats
for wildlife to move around,
encouraging birds and bats to breed.
Hedges are housing estates for
wildlife. They support a huge range
of animals and plants such as beaked
hawksbeard, pignut, cranesbill,
ladies smock, wavy bittercress,
vetch and ffoxgloves, as identified
Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
