Many of you who come to stay in the B&B at Yewfield are curious about what goes on in the gardens. We are fortunate to have such a variety of habitats on our 80 acres and we will be sharing highlights and secrets from each of them over the seasons. We manage our land with the primary purpose of conservation in a way that is sympathetic with the vegetarian ethos of the place yet is able to pay for itself. We do this by selling plants to guests, honey from our bees to the B&B, forest thinnings to a local wood chip manufacturer that sells it back to us as dried chip for our wood chip boiler and from land and forest conservation grants. The land and garden is looked after part time by Gary and Christina who will be writing this blog and by wwoofing volunteers i.e. World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms.
