Higher Trevaster Farm

The farm is situated on the higher reaches of the Fal Estuary, just south of Truro and is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The farmland is bordered by Calenick Creek and the Truro River and our foreshore is part of a designated SSSI. Large numbers of wading birds visit and feed here regularly and can be easily viewed from our fields without disturbance. We run an extensive grassland farm. The pastures are used to graze cattle and sheep and silage or hay is made from some of the pasture. We aim to use present day farming practises which will also help with conservation. By preserving the "patchwork quilt" landscape created by traditional farming, we are conserving an important habitat for many native species, some of which are becoming rare. We can offer many activities to help you explore and discover natural habitats on our farm. These activities are designed to link with National Curriculum objectives. You may also use the site for your own study projects.
