About the Organiser
Lower Sharpham Farm
Lower Sharpham Farm is a working organic farm managed for bio-diversity. We are part of the Natural England ‘Higher Level Stewardship’ Scheme. We raise organic produce including lamb, beef and eggs for sale, and make a number of wildlife products, most of which can be bought in our online shop. We also run several long term research projects which currently include, Badger TB Vaccination Deployment, Bumblebee Longevity and Farmland Bird Surveys. Using skills we practice on the farm we undertake countryside service contracts within the local area.
The day-to-day farm tasks are carried out by a dedicated team from the Robert Owen Communities charity who support adults with learning disabilities.
