At Chiltern Forage Farm we are encouraging wildlife by creating wildlife habitats such as a ‘dead hedges’, leaving dead trees where they fall when it’s safe or removing to secluded shaded areas if needed. By removing the grazing sheep in favour of limited forage cuts, wildlife are feeding and living in the meadows and grasses. Muntjac, rabbits, voles, birds etc create runs, resting places, dens, and nests. A pair of pheasants are spending the summer here. These habitats are particularly important given the prevalence of red kites and badgers in The Chilterns.
