Wyke farm nestles in a beautiful part of west Dorset and was formerly an intensive dairy farm of about 100 hectares. An adjoining 145 hectare area of woodland of approximately 145 hectares is now in the same ownership. The owners have been keen from the outset to benefit wildlife. We have been working with the farm manager on a variety of projects.
Moorcroft on Portland was to be developed into a number of low-cost properties for local people. A basic species assessment was carried out on the site which identified any species of interest, including a slow worm population. A BREEAM Ecohomes Assessment was then carried out.
