The Elms Farm

The Elms Farm

Once part of the Ancaster Estate, this award winning conservation farm has been in the Gibson family since 1912. Traditionally a mixed farm, its unique diversity of habitat and landscape provides an excellent introduction to glacial, natural and local history for both scholar and vistor alike. It has a wide glacial valley with superb moraine deposits and medieval terracing and a deep glacial overflow valley. A number of sensitive habitat creation projects have been undertaken including pond creation and hedgrow planting. Wildlife thrives in this environment. There are orchids, badgers, otters, water voles and a wealth of birds. There are also buried archaeological remains. All these features make a visit to the farm an educational treat.
