Open Farm Sunday

This Open Farm Sunday the Landless family invite you to explore Hill Farm, Duns Tew and learn about our cows, crops and renewable energy projects.

We have a 5MW solar farm project which powers 1,500 homes. Come down for a guided tour of the panels, a chance to hear more about how they work and see the new trees & hedges planted around them to support wildlife and biodiversity. See our woodchip burning biomass boiler which provides a sustainable heating system for the farm.

Jump on a tractor and trailer safari around the fields, meet our herd of 60 South Devon cross cattle and see our arable crops including wheat, oats & malting barley. We also have a small area of unspoilt woodland called Dashwood Gorse.

Free admission & children welcome!

About This Farm
Hill Farm is a small mixed family farm producing a variety of crops including wheat, oil seed rape and barley. We have a herd of 100 South Devon cross beef cattle. We have 26 acres of solar panels which produce enough energy to supply 1,500 homes.

CPR training

CPR training

Most of you will have seen the defibrillator in the old telephone box opposite Daisy Hill. Would you like to attend a free session at the village hall to teach you CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and to learn how the defibrillator works? If so, please contact juliet.semple@dunstew.com before Friday 21st June.

The session would likely to be held in July in the evening

Pooper Snooper

Let’s tackle dog poop once and for all.

Pooper Snooper

Pooper Snooper, a free smartphone application and website aims to build public awareness and in turn increase social pressure on dog fouling, and to identify problem hotspots to allow for better targeted enforcement activities.

Pooper Snooper

To achieve these aims, the mobile app, enables you to quickly and accurately record the locations of dog fouling on an interactive map, providing an overview of dog fouling hotspots. Any dog fouling incidents that are cleaned up can be marked as resolved, and bin locations can be recorded within the app, with a “find nearest bin” function helping you locate bins in unfamiliar areas. To help raise public awareness you can share your records along with an overview of dog fouling in the local area, on Twitter and Facebook.

Duns Tew Energy Park consultation feedback

Thanks to all who attended the Duns Tew Energy Park public consultation on the 5th April 2019. The feedback was generally positive with a lot of interest and support for the opportunity to have community ownership of the proposed solar park.

The importance of identifying a suitable construction access route was strongly communicated and is also of paramount importance to us. As highlighted, this is just the beginning of the consultation process with numerous additional consultation events being held over the coming months.

For those who were not able to attend the first consultation, we will be attending Open Farm Sunday at Hill Farm on 9th June 2019 where there will be further opportunity to discuss the proposal, understand more about community ownership and have a guided tour of the existing solar park.

If you would like further information regarding the community ownership proposal, please contact us using the contact form on www.aspeninfrastructure.co.uk/duns-tew
