Net gain for wildlife

From farmland to flourishing habitats

In 2015, Aldhurst Farm in Leiston was a 67-hectare arable field used to grow onions. Fast forward to today, and Aldhurst Farm is now Wild Aldhurst, a beautiful nature reserve combining grassland, heathland and wetland supporting a range of animals and plants.

We have now opened areas of Wild Aldhurst to the public to experience its rich biodiversity first-hand. Come and visit us!
