Elms Farm Swaby

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 visitor alike. It has a wide glacial valley with superb morainic deposits and medieval terracing and a deep glacial overflow valley. A number of sensitive habitat creation projects have been undertaken including: pond creation and hedgerow planting. Wildlife thrives in this environment. There are orchids, badger, otter, water vole and a wealth of birds. There are also buried archaeological remains. All these features make a visit to the farm an educational treat.
