How we care for the environment.

At Rains Farm we have worked the land, loved and cared for a vast array of animals and respected the environment. As a business we have to always have a clean and tidy appearance to our property and grounds but we allow certain areas of our orchard and gardens to enjoy a more wild look. This encourages many different birds, animals and insects to make Rains Farm their home. We are very fortunate to have a wide variety of species gracing our grounds. We continually work to improve their required habitats. In September 2019 we developed another wildlife pond, this time in front of the cottages so that guests can view it from Wren, Primrose and Granary cottages whilst enjoying sitting in their lounges! After only a few months the pond has attracted a variety of wildlife and the wildflowers we planted around it are flourishing!
