It is also part of the North Solent National Nature reserve (NNR). Currently, Warren Farm is in the Higher Level Environmental Stewardship Scheme (HLS).
Higher Level Environmental Stewardship Scheme (HLS) is an agri-environment scheme which aims to secure widespread environmental benefits. Beef cattle production, hay and silage cutting take place throughout the year alongside a managed commercial shoot. The management of the commercial beef cattle farming, with their grazing regimes and cutting of silage and hay at specific times of the year ensures that the grassland sward is maintained at an optimum height for the success of the breeding waders and the over-wintering and migratory wildfowl.
