Ge-mare Farm Fields (grid reference ST155424) is a 4.1 hectare (10.3 acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest near Holford on the Quantock Hills in Somerset, notified in 1988.

The site consists of an unimproved species-rich flood pasture community with interest enhanced by the presence of a wetter area supporting a lowland mire community. These habitats are rare both nationally and within the county of Somerset.[1]
