About the Event
Overtown Farm, near Cranham in Gloucestershire, is a 560 acre fully certified Organic farm owned by the National Trust, and lies 970 feet above sea level on the Cotswold escarpment. It overlooks the vale of Gloucester with a wonderful view of the Malvern Hills and the Black Mountains beyond. The farm is run by Martin and Pauhla Whitaker and has been farmed by the Whitaker family for over 60 years.
The farm has been in various environmental schemes for over 30 years and is currently in a 10 year Higher Level Environmental Scheme (HLS). This involves managing the land to encourage, maintain and increase various target species by providing the sort of habitat that supports nature at all levels of the food chain.
