THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO DO IN THE COTSWOLDS
but
maybe only one place where you can step back in time and re-live a little bit of your childhood:wandering in wild flower meadows, surrounded by butterflies.

  

< Please see Our publication list below > 

Visit the Farm

Special visits can be arranged, including wild flower drives for those unable to walk long distances, 'meet the cows' from the safety of our four wheel drive vehicle plus many and varied exciting woodland walks and wonderful 'meetings with remarkable trees' where you can travel  either on foot or by vehicle to be introduced to ancient and venerable oaks over 600 years old, massive, silent, almost fossilised hawthorns: still standing, though long dead, in the middle of a fairy-land mini forest. Also productive walnut trees of 120 years and towering ash trees too tall to photograph.


Unique one or two person trips can be pre-booked for fabulous birthday or special occasion presents..

Artists, photographers, writers can use the secluded parts of the farm for inspiration and contemplation and be guaranteed solitude in their own chosen location

The Calf's World


"The Calf's World - DVD" gives a glimpse of the everyday lives of cows and calves something most people never see.

This unique film, the second from Kite's Nest Farm (See The Secret Life of the Farm) gives a privileged view of the secret life of calves, something most people never see. Living in family groups with several generations together, these calves and their families are free to roam over unspoiled pastures with an immense diversity of plants and grasses, allowing them to develop their natural behaviour in a commercially viable farm situation. (Review from the publisher, The Good Life Press)

The Secret life of Cows


"The Secret Life of Cows - BOOK"  is a compendium of true anecdotes which was reviewed in The London Review of Books by Alan Bennett

The Secret Life of Cows, received ecstatic reviews worldwide and is accepted as a leading text on animal sentience.  

Cows can love, play games and form strong life-long friendships. They can sulk, hold grudges, they have preferences and can be vain. All these characteristics and more have been charted by Rosamund Young based on her experiences looking after the family farms´ herd at Kite´s Nest farm, a farm long regarded as a trailblazer of the organic movement. 
A book providing a fascinating insight into bovine behaviour including self-medication, family and herd relationships, communication, grieving and playing and makes for a highly readable and poignant study littered with anecdotes that will make the reader laugh, wonder and reflect. Certainly it will make you look at the domestic cow in a different light.

The Farm

"The Secret Life of the Farm - DVD" is the The Secret Life of Cow's visual counterpart. 

The Young´s farm organically and have, wherever possible, let nature come first with both their attitude to livestock and their immediate environment. As a result their farm is host to rare flowers, ancient woodland, pure running streams and wildlife which live happily side-by side with the cattle. This film, shot over a 5 year period by Rosamund, shows us impromptu and random insights into how the farm animals behave. It shows them making choices and expressing preferences, at play and at rest. All this is seen against a backdrop of a farm where the ethos is as much for care of the land as it is for care of the animals. (Review from the publisher, The Good Life Press)
