Hello and Welcome to the homepage of Highfield Farm, Topsham,Devon.
Thank you for visiting our web site - hopefully it will help you find out a bit more about what Highfield Farm has to offer you. Highfield Farm is a traditional small 118 acre mixed organic farm , owned and run by the same family since 1905. Since 1987 the farm has been certified organic by The Soil Association.
Located just minutes from Exeter, we opened our eco- friendly conference centre in 2012.
We began converting the farm to organic standards when we became increasingly concerned about the effects of intensive agriculture upon the environment, and today it is run by the fourth generation , Ian and Lyndsay Shears and their young family. Currently Highfield Farm rears organic cattle , including native breed Dexters, and produces organic wheat for milling and organic barley for animal feed. We are commited to doing all that we can to protect the environment, and that is why we joined Higher Level Stewardship in 2006 . This will enable us to continue protecting wildlife and their rare habitats.
Our recently completed green oak classroom offers a truly different, inspiring environment for school visits , conferences or training events.
