Set in a rolling landscape of farmland, woods and hedgerows, Home Farm is one of the largest native woodland creation sites in southern England.
The 137ha (338.5 acres) site is a mosaic of different habitats, including open grassland, secondary woodland, conifer woodland and an area of ancient semi-natural woodland. Since the Trust purchased the land in 1990, we have planted around 67,000 trees and shrubs to create new woodland. The diversity of habitats at Home Farm attracts a wide range of wildlife as well as offering visitors a large area where they can enjoy getting close to nature.
Join our knowledgeable Site Manager, Phil Truluck, for a guided walk around Home Farm to discover more about this little known haven for wildlife in the Hampshire countryside, between Burkham and Lasham, 4 miles north-west of Alton.
This walk is aimed at adults but children aged 10 and above are welcome, accompanied by a responsible adult. With the aim of getting close to the wildlife, we don’t recommend dogs are brought on the walk.
Friday 9th August – Trees & woodland wildlife: Trees are in full leaf and wildlife is thriving as the summer season is in full swing. Phil will take you on a guided walk around the east side of the site to look more closely at the trees and woods of Home Farm and the wildlife that lives there. The site is home to Skylarks, Yellowhammers, Tree Pipits, Marsh Warblers and many other rare birds.
10am – 12.30pm
