Dartmoor National Park is not just an iconic landscape. The National Park supports a diverse spectrum of businesses keeping the local economy alive and making a vital contribution to Dartmoor's success.

Agriculture, forestry, tourism and recreation account for around a third of employment and a quarter of turnover on Dartmoor.  These sectors have strong links to both the National Park purposes of conservation and enjoyment and we work closely with them to support sustainable growth.
