Woodlands Farm is a fragment of London's old countryside that offers a unique opportunity to conserve heritage landscape and promote biodiversity.
At heart this is a conservation and development project.
The ambitions of The Woodlands Farm Trust are to:
1. build a truly sustainable future through sensitive farming using native stock and working towards a sustainable, harmonious practice, minimising the impact of activities on the environment both local and global.
2. maintain the farm as a community resource, giving volunteers and the community access to education, training, experiences and tasks that they might not otherwise encounter.
3. conserve and improve the biodiversity of our 89 acres.
4. create a sustainable operating and financial structure for the future.
British White Cattle
British White cattle are identified by their short white hair and normally black ears, feet and nose. The skin beneath the fur is normally grey or reddish and can sometimes have coloured spots. It is naturally without horns (polled). British Whites are a hardy breed and will graze on rough vegetation including trees and nettles.
British Whites are descendants of the indigenous wild white cattle of Great Britain and are thought to come from the park at Whalley Abbey, Lancashire. A lot of the herd was then moved to Norfolk and then split and this herd formed the basis of the British White Breed.
