This farm lies within an unspoilt part of Nidderdale (now an AONB site) with conservation work being an important part of the management. Until the early 60’s it was a productive dairy farm, then the fields were sold off and used as accommodation land, receiving little positive management. The land reverted to the present occupants in February 1992 and the aim is to use the land in a responsible, environmental manner. The owner has studied traditional country skills and grazing livestock management at Askham Bryan. You can see the traditional, historic pattern of open moor, enclosed moorland and sheltered in-bye land across the valley as the fields range in height from approx. 130 to 300 metres.
