Tipton’s Croft is a traditional English croft (field), located in central Shropshire. It has a three acre wildflower meadow, small lake, pond, scrubland, native hedgerows and trees: a total of about five acres.
It is a working croft that provides food, water and wood, but more importantly provides an environment that maximises biodiversity and supports native Shropshire flora and fauna, with a positive impact on the environment. In other words it gives us hay, honey and heat, the wildlife loves it and it looks good too.
It’s a work in progress (as of September 2019 three and a half years so far) and will take years a few more years to reach maturity, but it’s already proving a success. It’s a small thing but we think it’s worth it.
