Corringdon Farm Visit

On Wednesday 22nd August 2018, 32 Members congregated at the superbly situated Corringdon Farm near South Brent courtesy of our hosts Philip and Charlotte French.

The Farm is located 220 metres above sea level and considering how high up we were and the fact that the weather forecast was a bit changeable we were all greatly relieved that the afternoon stayed mainly dry; despite a light mist which formed, especially when we reached the highest spot which was in the area of Corringdon Ball.

On the way there Philip gave us a wealth of information about the Farm and the surrounding area as well as a fabulous insight into the economics and methodology the Family uses in the running of a Dartmoor Hill Farm.

After enjoying Philip’s tour of the Farm and walking over some of the Family’s 650 acre holding of land it was fair to say we had all worked up a healthy appetite and so we were all delighted to sit in their barn and enjoy Charlotte’s tea and coffee as well as tucking into home-made sandwiches and cakes prepared by the Dartmoor Society Executive Committee.
