The farm and countryside surrounding it are steeped in history and areas of historical and environmental interest. Originally a hunting lodge of King Charles II, the farm is made up of over 500 acres of rolling fields and 2,500 of ancient woodland. Connected by a network of brooks and ponds feeding the river Lod, the area is a wetland corridor of environmental significance and home to a diverse collection of wildlife and local flora and fauna.
Reputed to be the inspiring “green and pleasant lands” that Parry overlooked as he wrote the score to Jerusalem from the 12th century priory at Shulbrede nearby, Lower Lodge Farm is a perfect reflection of an English farm working in harmony with nature. Originally a dairy farm and more recently growing predominantly cereal crops, the farm is now expanding further into conservation by working with DEFRA on its environmental stewardship.
