Our Local Community

The community where we live, work and farm is extremely important to us, and we’re always looking for ways that we can help support and protect it.

Reston Scar – Natural Flood Management

Natural Flood Management (NFM) projects are designed to store, slow, and disrupt flows of rivers, becks and on land.  NFM strives to emulate natural processes that also maximise conservation benefits, including the use of sustainable materials.  The innovative Cumbrian NFM pilot programme was funded by the Department of Food and Rural Agriculture (DEFRA) and administrated by the Environment Agency.

Land Based Studies

For 12 months, Kirkbie Kendal School Yr10 students have been studying BETEC Level 1 in Land Based Studies at Lakeland Farm Visitor Centre.

The students have been visiting the Lakeland Farm Visitor Centre every 3 weeks to work with Isaac and learn about the running of the farm.
