Welcome to the wild heart of Sheepdrove Organic Farm!
We have returned a cluster of farmland, woodland and scrub at the heart of the farm completely and entirely to nature to create another ecologically diverse wildlife habitat in our mosaic of valuable ecosystems. Our rewilding project relies on natural regeneration so it is nature who is going to be in the driving seat and the land managers will be grazing livestock.
Sheepdrove is harvesting heat from the earth with a ground source heat pump. A buried network of pipes captures this geothermal heat and uses it as renewable energy to power the central heating and cooling systems in our sustainable events venue. The whole system is powered by renewable electricity from our two wind turbines and 900 solar panels reducing on-site emissions to net zero.
