Guests are welcome to get involved with the various farm activities, such as feeding and collecting eggs.

We are also proud of our wildlife trail and hide which the Devon Wildlife Trust helped design. We have received a Silver Award from them for our work for the benefit of Devons's wildlife and natural environment. We have put up a barn owl box down in the valley.
Red Deer can be seen from our hide and also badgers and foxes. Also seen on the farm a polecat and
