This 220-acre grassland farm is situated in some of Herefordshire’s most beautiful countryside. The land and farm buildings, which include the cattle yards at Street and Redlands farms, were made over to the Trust by a deed of gift from David Powell in 2000.
David has retained the right to continue living and farming Awnell's Farm for as long as he wishes. The farm has a closed herd of traditional Hereford cattle with an ancestry dating back over 170 years. A wonderful orchard includes many old cider apple trees, some of which are 300 years old, making this an especially important farm.
With help from volunteers and wildlife monitors, our farmers use a variety of sensitive farming methods to transform areas of intensively farmed desert into productive farms teeming with wildlife.
We update these species dependant on yearly reports produced by our wildlife monitors.
We give the conservation status beneath each species name. Find out more about our sources.
