Elmswell Farms is situated one mile outside the market town of Driffield in East Yorkshire. It is mainly arable in nature, with some let grasses and a fold of Highland cattle. The farm is the source of the Driffield beck, the most northerly chalk stream in England. The area adjacent to the river is managed under a SSSI agreement providing a wide array of wildlife, including wild brown trout. Conservation is taken very seriously, with 12% of arable land supporting wild bird, pollen and nectar mixes and 48 miles of grass margins adjacent to 34 miles of hedgerow.
