About Challacombe Farm:

Challacombe Farm is Duchy of Cornwall owned and managed by Mark Owen and Naomi Oakley. With Higher Level Stewardship and other grant funding they manage the farm balancing the needs of conservation, archaeology, landscape and access with the result that it is probably one of the best farms on Dartmoor to watch wildlife – particularly in the Spring and Summer when we see the return of birds who overwintered in warmer climes.

They are also part of a farm cluster group who are collaborating to make their farms environmentally and economically sustainable on a landscape scale with an eye on the changing public and private finance opportunities. For more info about Challacombe Farm visit www.dartmoorfarm.com
