Meet the owner

Anita or Andrew Higman

Andrew was born and bred at Higher Menadew, his parent’s having moved here in 1944, and Anita originates from London. Higher Menadew Farm is set in the peaceful Cornish countryside and we feel very fortunate to be able to live and work in such a beautiful county. Our central Cornwall location means that we are within easy reach of all that Cornwall has to offer and we especially enjoy the fabulous coastline. We have walked all Cornwall’s coastal path, all 296.2 miles, along with one of our Labradors, Archie, and the vistas are endlessly stunning. We value the environment. Our all-grass farm on which we rear beef cattle, the dairy herd went in 1996, is deliberately run with low inputs to encourage traditional grasses and our hedges are overgrown to encourage wildlife. We are members of the Cornwall Sustainable Tourism Project and business members of Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
