While efficiently producing wholesome food, a philosophy called Integrated Farm Management (IFM), is used to take great care of the natural environment. IFM seeks to harmonise nature and the science of food production, ensuring pollution is minimised, the landscape is enhanced and wildlife habitats that produce bio-diversity are encouraged. Upper Booth is an upland sheep and beef farm situated within the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire’s spectacular Dark Peak. The farm, running to 783 acres, is part of a small settlement at the west end of the Vale of Edale. The main enterprise is a flock of pure bred Swaledale ewes; a small herd of Belted Galloway suckler cows is being established for conservation grazing. A camp site has been established on the farm which is frequently used by walkers on the Pennine Way, which passes through the farm.
