What’s Next

The Shallowford Trust is committed to maintaining the farm as a working hill farm and developing the work of Elizabeth Braund and Rosemary Bird, sharing the farm experience with young people.

To that end we have developed redevelopment plans in close consultation with the DNPA and local community. The proposed plans have been passed and work has begun. The facilities for learning and animal management has been completed, the accommodation facilities are soon to be started. Meanwhile Shallowford Farm is now welcoming many groups to experience the farm, learn about food production, wild places and the wonders of Dartmoor.

We are pleased to show you the proposed plans for the future of the farm and the associated Summary Business Plan. These documents outline the purpose behind the project. Should you have any questions then we would very much welcome you contacting the team at the farm.
