In 2011 Langaford won first prize in Butterfly Conservation’s Dartmoor Farmers Fritillary Award, in recognition of their effort over many years to restore and improve habitat for the fritilllary butterflies. Farm trustee and ecologist Peter Beale will give a knowledgeable guided walk of Langaford’s beautiful meadows, after an initial quick tour of Beetor’s across the road.
