Sunflower Meadow

*The Sunflower Meadow is now closed for this summer, we look forward to seeing you again next year!*

Our very popular Sunflower Meadow is back for 2021!

The Sunflowers are a wonderful sight, but above all the field is providing the perfect habitat for an abundance of insects, pollinators and other species. 

We'd love to take this opportunity to share with you why the Sunflowers are here.

Biodiversity:

We farm with nature in a number of different ways. By planting the Sunflowers, we have created a habitat like no other! The unsung heroes of Farming - bees, butterflies, insects and other pollinators - have made themselves at home on this nectar rich field. If you're quiet, you may be able to hear the buzzing of busy bees.

Soil Health:

With their deep tap roots, the Sunflowers are a fantastic break crop from our usual grass and arable rotation. Their roots aerate the soil whilst also creating a nutrient rich base for our future crops, which ensures our next crop thrives.

Wellbeing:

Not only is the Sunflower Meadow good for nature and for our soil, but it is also a wonderful spectacle to help lift spirits. With the colour yellow representing happiness, optimism and warmth, this bright field is something comforting and enjoyable during these strange and uncertain times.
