HEDGEROWS
The Farm has a high and varied level of wildlife and biodiversity. Hedges are only cut on a 3 year rotation 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 by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
