Hawkesbury Home Farm is a mixed farm situated in the Cotswolds. It is situated on the edge of the Cotswold Escarpment with a range of flat fields at the top of the hillside with woodland in between on the steeper slopes and grassland at the foot of the hills. The farm is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the historic Cotswold Way and Monarch Way (Charles I and Battle of Worcester). We also have a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) which is a limestone quarry. The farmed land is approximately 650 acres comprising woodland, arable crops and permanent pasture. In addition there are wild seed areas and floriferous meadows providing suitable habitats for numerous wild species. We grow rape, linseed, wheat, barley and oats for harvest in a rotation. Hay and silage is also made as feed for the cattle. We farm using traditional methods and we have decided to become organic for our livestock and the food we harvest for them, including any medicines that might be necessary. We principally have a suckler herd of Limousin cattle, a French breed as well as a new herd of Belted Galloways a rare British breed. There are also Bantam chickens at the farm.
