Lower Hewood Farm is a 45 acre small-holding in the hamlet of Hewood on the borders of Dorset, Devon and Somerset. The land lies next to the Forde Abbey estate, 20 minutes from the Jurassic coast and features traditionally laid hedgerows, species rich meadows, an SNCI with flag irises and views towards the Blackdown Hills. The holding is certified organic with the Soil Association. More information about Lower Hewood Farm.
