As can be seen from the enclosed plan the land is split by a minor county road. In the last 15 years the farm has been farmed on an entirely environmental basis with only farmyard manure applied to the hay meadows. The owners have also been in all the environmental schemes such as Tir Cymen and Tir Gofal. A deliberate policy has been made to encourage Flora and Fauna, consequently the hay meadows have a red clover lay and all sorts of wildlife have been attracted including butterflies, grasshoppers, burnet's, hellebores, aarons rod and wild raspberries.
