Wildlife

We are proudly part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme which works to conserve and restore wildlife habitats and preserve the history and character of our beautiful countryside.

The fields at Doves Farm have a permanent grass margin or beetle bank which provide homes for birds, bats and of course, beetles. These creatures then feed on insects which could damage our crops, allowing us to manage pests in a natural and environmentally friendly way. Over the winter months, crop stubble is left to encourage ground nesting birds such as lapwings and, if we are really lucky, stone-curlews.
