At Shawcroft Farm we pride ourselves on farming to high standards with our animals and the environment.
We are award winning for our work with conservation of wildlife through farming. It is important to us that the farm and wildlife are managed side by side. The wealth of hedgerows, trees and limestone pastures are incorporated into maintaining the farmland. We plant areas of nectar rich species for the butterflies and bees and leave fields of winter stubble, a great food source for the many birds that also live on the farm.
A number of hives on the farm are cared for by John the ‘Bee man’ who lives locally. His knowledge and expertise on beekeeping is second to none. The super honey produced on the farm is a key ingredient in our Heavenly Honeycomb ice cream. A fabulous combination of quality milk and cream and delicious honey – mmm it is truly heavenly.
