The Greenoak herd is a “flying” herd. Home base is Langley , 5 hectares of acid grassland. Cows come here at calving and bulling time. The small area is managed under a Countryside Stewardship Agreement. At various times of the year the herd is out on other sites such as:
Chapel Common, Rake. 125 hectares of lowland heath, but only a relatively small area fenced at present.
Lynchmere Common, lowland Heath between Liphook and Haslemere. Newly fenced this is the first year it will be grazed.
Weavers Down 35 hectares of former heathland, between Langley and Griggs Green Liphook. Farmed briefly in the 1970’s, an interesting site to see the progression of once cultivated land returning to heathland vegetation.
Selborne Common, Selborne Hants 30 hectares of grass, scrub and ancient woodland on clay and flint soil. Owned by the National Trust, the management work is aimed at reducing encroaching scrub and restoring the wood pasture landscape.
