The edible woodland area is 6.8 hectares (16.8 acres) and will have a total of 4,500 trees and shrubs which will serve as a food production and recreation grounds.
The farm is run by third generation farmer, David Rose. The family has run the original farm since 1933, when Stanley Clarke first came to Screveton. His daughter & son-in-law, Margaret & Peter Rose then took over.
In recent years David, their son has championed and developed the Eco centre alongside the running of the main farm. To support the farm to diversify, we now have two independent trading arms, firstly as a commercial farming business and secondly as a care farm based in the Eco centre.
Both the Farm and the Care Farm are working to develop per ma culture practices that are ecologically harmonious, efficient and productive systems for creating sustainable ways of living. In addition, the farm is working with the Woodland Trust to develop an Agrow Forestry Scheme where trees are grown in association with crops, pastures and livestock.
