Glimpse a wilder future

 at Leewood


Rewilding Futures can help you take a glimpse into a wilder future. An oasis of life in a secluded Dartmoor valley which has been treasured by the same family for over half a century. A place where nature takes the lead and where we try to farm in her image using permaculture and regenerative agriculture principles. Visit, stay, learn, love, return.

Nick Viney - Regenerative Agriculture

I am interested in assisting farmers/ land managers who feel that they would like to take a look at more regenerative systems. To have a no obligation, informal chat about what regenerative farming could mean to them. Folk who want to grow their Natural Capital , graze for biodiversity, increase their livestock carrying capacity whilst reducing inputs. Rewild areas and increase productivity in others. Practical, one to one support to help land managers transition optimistically into the next age of farming & land management. I want to some how bridge the gap between conventional farming practice and rewilding. I believe the biodiversity can return using high densities of grazing livestock if managed correctly and for the carrying capacity of your farm to increase 2 fold in your first growing season.

About NV


NV Background - The three constants in my life : Art in Agriculture, Animals & Leewood.

Art in Ag:30 years of wrangling, using my creativity to chip away at farming, food production and environmental practices that made me uncomfortable ; paintings, portraits & fun sculpture along the way.

Animals: 18 years in one of the last great mixed veterinary practices where no two hours were the same, from assisting on a cow Caesarian one minute, anaesthetising a cat or doing worm counts in the lab another.
Later and now as a Range Clearer on the high moor with my trusty horse & dog team.

Leewood: Where I grew up & my opportunity to manage my own land and raise my kids.  A dive into Permaculture, Holistic Management,  Forest gardening , AMPGrazing with its unrivalled power of habitat  recovery and the most fulfilling experience which continues to build soil, grow food, receive more guests and share knowledge year on year.
