Lower Dacum Farm is located to the north east of Porkellis Moor, within the Cober River catchment area, an area of high nature conservation interest. A number of different habitat types are found here, including hedgerows, open water, willow carr, reed marsh, woodland and old meadows. The farm dates back to the early 1800s, when it formed part of the Halwin Estate. The track leading to the pond and conservation area once formed the route to Ruby School, which was on Garudna Moor. This farm is typical of a small Cornish farm, working on an extensive system of production, using rotational management; grazing and hay production. The large pond and conservation area is of particular interest.
