Bent Farm is a dairy farm on the Tissington Estate with nationally important ridge and furrow, the archaeological remains of medieval ploughing. There are also flood meadows, a very rare habitat in the Peak District, of European conservation significance. Mike Herridge has been awarded EQM for careful management of these features.
Excellent site for upland wader birds such as lapwing, curlew and snipe, which are attracted by traditional hay meadows, scrapes (small ponds) and stubble turnips. Traditional breeds of livestock kept, including pedigree Belted Galloway cattle. Beef, lamb, mutton and pork from the farm available seasonally. Also haylage for sale as quality horse feed.
Available: From the farm gate. Please ring beforehand. Leave a message if we are out on the farm and we will ring you back.
