Country Walk Summary

Hermitage Dairy Farm near Newport

Hermitage Dairy Farm is involved with the Higher Level Stewardship agri-environment scheme, made up of a patchwork of grazed fields bounded by species rich hedges and copses. Management under the scheme includes reducing agricultural inputs applied to the grassland to minimise run off into water courses feeding into the Eastern Yar and River Medina, and maintaining the varied age structure of hedgerows and woodland to benefit red squirrel and dormice. The scheme includes a small area of open access to the south west of the farm, next to existing public rights of way, where visitors can enjoy far reaching views over the north, west and east of the Island.
