The Devon Bronze Otter
We are delighted to announce that for the first time in its 30-year history the trophy has been jointly awarded to two farms!
Congratulations to Kevin & Julie Bateman – Martinsfield Farm is an organic farm covering 200ha of grassland, with a further 34ha of woodland. Judges were impressed with the special attention made to maintaining soil health, in order to maximise grass yields. As well as a successful school programme using the woodland as a teaching venue.
Congratulations also to Andy Bradford - Brimpts Farm is a 280ha traditional upland farm with an additional 55ha of woodland. Andy has made significant contributions to the farming community by setting up the Dartmoor Farmers Association, marketing beef and lamb raised and processed within Dartmoor National Park. He helped form the Dartmoor Wood Fuel Co-operative to utilise wood from local sources and improve woodland biodiversity.
