Dartmoor Hill Farm Project

The Dartmoor Hill Farm Project was set up to try to ensure a viable future for Dartmoor farmers. Since 2003 the Dartmoor Hill Farm Project has supported farmers on Dartmoor to establish and run a wide range of projects to add value to their businesses and to increase vocational skills. There is a small team of staff who are based in Princetown and can be contacted on 01822 890913 or emailed at hfp@dartmoor.gov.uk. The project is hosted by Dartmoor National Park Authority and funded from 2017-2020 by the Princes Countryside Fund, Dartmoor National Park Authority, the Heritage Lottery Fund, through Moor Than Meets The Eye and the Duchy of Cornwall.

We act as a central hub for Dartmoor farmers for a wide range of enquiries and assistance and send out regular newsletters with relevant information and topical issues to our database of nearly 400 farms.

Our emphasis is on assisting farmers with advice, guidance, collaborative activities, communication and funding.
