Welcome to With the Wild CIC! 

Our Motivation

We are motivated by a deep concern for nature and a desire to work towards a resilient future, mitigating the effects of climate change, adapting to changes that are already inevitable and increasing biodiversity. We want to regenerate ecosystems and educate ourselves and others about regenerative ecological design, agro-ecology and healthy, sustainable, self-sufficient ways of living. 

In July 2020 we acquired Higher Barn Farm, a small 7.5ha farm in the eastern foothills of Exmoor near Roadwater. The land had previously been used to grow wheat using traditional industrial agriculture methods. Our vision was to transform this parcel of land to become a diverse and thriving ecosystem - full of wildlife and wonderful food - that we could share with the local community.  


Our Aims:

Our aims are to:

  • Create an organic and diverse agroforestry system to grow ecological food for the local community: providing resilience in the face of climate change and supporting biodiversity.
  • Provide educational and training opportunities in agroecology, agroforestry, permaculture, food preparation and preserving, traditional skills, sustainable building techniques and natural materials.
  • Support a relocalised circular economy - one that is human scale, non-commodity and grounded in friendship and collaboration
  • Work in partnership with other local businesses, schools, organisations and community groups to work towards Net Zero
  • Provide sustainable livelihoods through the provision of ‘green’ jobs, training opportunities and apprenticeships.
  • Sequester carbon & increase biodiversity through the use of agroecological techniques and agroforestry systems.
