Dartmoor Hill Farm Project

Dartmoor Hill Farm Project (DHFP) was set up to ensure a viable future for Dartmoor farmers. Since 2003 DHFP 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 The project is hosted by Dartmoor National Park Authority (DNPA) and funded from 2015-2017 by the Princes Countryside Fund, DNPA, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Duchy of Cornwall.

A review of the last 10 years of DHFP activities gives you an insight into the range and impact of our work.
