Woodlands Farm, Lincolnshire

Woodlands Farm forms the heart of a family enterprise which has been farmed by the Dennis family for four generations. The 690 hectare farm sits on the fertile flat silt fens of south Lincolnshire. It produces vegetables, cereals, beef and turkeys.

Cattle and turkeys

Lincoln red cattle are native to the county but are increasingly rare in the Lincolnshire fens. The farm has a small pedigree single suckler herd which are well adapted to life here. The organic bronze turkeys are free range.

Organic vegetables

Woodlands Farm grows up to 40 varieties of vegetables and salads, many delivered through its organic vegetable box scheme. They grow field vegetables for wholesale and supermarket outlets.

Wildlife and historical interest

Woodland's Farm is close to the marshes of the Wash, a popular feeding ground for sea birds. Look out for lapwing, shelduck and herons, as well as skylarks and hares. New hedgerows provide wildlife corridors, linking trees and drainage dykes. It is said the monks of Crowland abbey reclaimed this area from the sea some 900 years ago. It is a landscape of wide-open spaces and colossal skies: 'all sky and geometry' as the poet John Clare once said.

Farm trail, visits and education

Walks and talks for schools and other groups can be arranged through the farm office. Woodlands Farm also works closely with HDRA - the Organic Organisation and Elm Farm Research Centre to provide information for other farmers and professionals.
