Pertwood is made up of 2,600 organic acres, growing cereals, raising sheep and
encouraging wildlife to flourish.
Tucked into the south west corner of Wiltshire is our rolling organic farm that spreads across
2,600 acres. Set upon ancient chalk downland, Pertwood was purely a sheep farm until like many
farms, the outbreak of WWII brought the need to plough up more land for food. Since then
Pertwood has operated a classic mixed organic farming programme of grains, legumes, and grass
leys grazed by sheep and beef cattle.
At Pertwood, we are passionate about caring for wildlife and our fragile environment. For more
than thirty years we have been chemical-free and pledge to stay that way. Naturally, we think
this is the best way to farm!
A haven for all sorts of species.
At Pertwood we are proud of our success in attracting a vast variety of species,
all of whom are
safe in our environment: birds, mammals, butterflies, insects, they all thrive in and on our
ancient Wiltshire down lands. We employ a consulting entomologist and our research into insect
life and micro-organisms is continuing as we believe that is essence of soil health. The RSPB
recognise the importance of our habitat and farming methods and hold us up as an example what
can be achieved, using chemical-free, sympathetic farming techniques. Corn buntings, in decline
in most areas of the UK are thriving on our farm.

We have been an organic farm for more than thirty years. We mainly grow oats, barley and rye and
next year, we plan to grow wheat. Our yields are consistently competitive with many
agri-chemical farms, plus we have the bonus of lower input costs and we are rewarded by
healthier soil together with the satisfaction that we are preserving the environment for future
Fact: Pertwood is one of the oldest organic farms in the UK.
