About the Farm

 

The Ludham Hall Estate is now farmed by the Ritchie family, which includes Environmentally Sensitive Area grazing marshes, which are divided by a network of small waterways and surrounded by three Broadland rivers – the Ant, the Bure and the Thurne.

A riverbank walk offers access to keen ramblers to a completely unspoilt corner of Norfolk. The farmland surrounding Ludham village and beyond is part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme, promoting hedgeplanting, several miles of marked public access (footpaths and bridleways), with established grassland margins, providing a variety of habitats for invertebrates, mammals and birdlife.

There is a wide and constantly changing number of wildlife on the farm, and we work closely with the Hawk and Owl Trust to improve the habitat of the Barn Owl. Bird surveys are done regularly, with up to 84 different species being sighted in recent years, along with 8 different species of dragonfly and 9 different species of butterfly.
