FARMING AND FORESTRY
A rotation of milling winter wheat varieties and oilseed rape are combined with a large area of over-wintered stubble, providing the perfect habitat for ground nesting birds like lapwing, redshank and skylarks.
Suffolk Mule ewes, known for their natural mothering ability, are crossed with Texel rams to create lambs with strong conformation. Good animal husbandry is important to us.
Miserden boasts 850 acres of award-wining native broad leaf woodland which are thinned routinely to allow light through the canopy to enable all species of flora and fauna to flourish.
Charming limestone cottages, a cosy pub and a vibrant village shop all nestle into this Cotswold village with views over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Find out more.
