An Inspirational and Passionate Team of Professionals

Tom and his team at Devon Habitat Services have been inspirational to me in their knowledge and passion for nature and the living landscape.

Having inherited two meadows which have been in the family for over 80 years ,and part of the 3% of remaining haymeadows lost since WW2, I needed a team with the vision , passion and empathy to work with me on restoring and maintaining this rare habitat.

Each member of the team bring their own unique skills and interests to the job in hand.
I am impressed with their hedgelaying ,fencing and countryside skills which my father , grandfather and great-grandfather , all passionate farmers , would be rightly proud.

It has been a privilege to watch and learn from true professionals.
