Ashott Barton is set across two valleys, Penycombe and Shutcombe and has a range of different habitats, hey meadows, marsh land, gorse and steep wooded valleys. These form the basis for a diverse ecosystem which we and our cattle enjoy.
The cultivation of a grass crop is of such importance as it forms the entire of our winter fodder. As we are and organic closed system there is no import of food so this must support the cattle over the winter months. We believe that a good grass crop is diverse in its content with many different plant species bringing different qualities.
