Set in the heart of the beautiful South Somerset countryside, Downhead Manor Farm is a family-run arable business with a distinct focus on integrating modern farming practices with our wonderful British wildlife.


Our exceptionally diverse range of flora and fauna, has been brought about by careful and sensitive attention to detail whilst applying the conventional practices that we believe best complement our natural environment. As a result, we are proud to have attained entry to the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme (HLS), acknowledging our management of the local wildlife, from our Greater Crested Newts, Field Mice, Voles, Hares and Badgers, to our Orchids, Listed Rare Wildflowers, endangered Butterflies and on to our Hobbies, striking Yellowhammers, singing Skylarks and majestic Barn Owls, to name but a few. 

Our acceptance onto the HLS scheme acknowledges that with a little consideration and forethought, we can integrate sustainable conventional farming practices with exceptional wildlife conservation, to produce safe, healthy, nutritious food while ensuring a bountiful wildlife rich paradise, for future generations to enjoy.
