Higher Trevaster

The farm is situated on the higher reaches of the Fal Estuary, just south of Truro and is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The farmland is bordered by Calenick Creek and the Truro River and foreshore is part of a designated SSSI. Large numbers of wading birds visit and feed here regularly and can be easily viewed from the fields without disturbance. It is an extensive grassland farm and the pastures are used to graze cattle and sheep and silage or hay is made from some of the pasture. The aim is to use present day farming practises which will also help with conservation. By preserving the "patchwork quilt" landscape created by traditional farming, an important habitat is being conserved for many native species, some of which are becoming rare. Many activities are offered, to help explore and discover natural habitats on the farm and these activities are designed to link with National Curriculum objectives. The site is also available for those who wish to use it for study projects.
