Heritage farms are maintained in the same way they were in olden days. At heritage farms traditional domestic crops and plants are grown in the fields and gardens and the same types animals are kept at farms as were previously: horses, cows, sheep and chickens. The purpose of heritage farms is to preserve those plant and animal species that require an environment such as meadow or a pasture which can only be developed by traditional farming. At the same time old traditional work methods and structures are preserved.



Heritage landscapes are restored with the help of volunteers. Volunteer camps are arranged by the WWF and other organisations we work in cooperation with. For further information on volunteer camps see the What's new? webpage for each destination.
