THE STORY OF THE GOLDEN CHAMPION.
If ever you rest amongst the elderflower, foxgloves and swaying summer grasses of Kingcombe Meadows, prepare for a performance.
A nimble golden harvest mouse, no larger than your thumb, uses its talented tail to somersault from stem to stem in search of wild barley and floral flavours. We’d give this grassy gymnast a gold medal every time.

If Kingcombe Meadows is good enough for acrobatic golden harvest mice, it’s good enough for royalty. Prince Charles has visited the nature reserve twice.
