Kirkland Farm comprises about 200 acres of open land, and is managed by Clive and Faith Sinclair. A princpal aim of the farm is the promotion of wildlife and to that end we maintain a wide diversity of flora and fauna. Romney sheep are used to control the sward. Many of our fields are herb rich / wildflower pastures.
There are 7 different kinds of orchids on the farm (frog, fragrant, greater butterfly, early purple, common spotted, heath spotted and northern marsh), two kinds of heather, as well as blaeberries. In June, the hills are covered with bluebells. There is a vibrant population of Roe Deer, as well as badgers, foxes, voles, field mice, hares and lizards. Otters are now a permanent feature, though hard to spot. RSPB surveys reveal considerable diversity of birds
