Say Hello to Dani

Here at Steve’s Leaves we believe strongly in the need for ongoing conservation of the land we farm. We therefore dedicate 10% of our farmland to preserving nature and ensuring that local wildlife can thrive.

We love the work we do, and have a few friends who help us along the way including our resident Harris Hawk Dani. Using a hawk like Dani is one of the most natural ways possible to control pests. Take a look to see what happened when the Solent News team came to see him in action. Here’s a sneak peek at what they saw on their visit:


We’re by no means alone in using this age old method of pest control. The All England Club at Wimbledon is home to Rufus, a Harris Hawk like Dani, who helps to keep their lawns pest-free during the summer.
