On the in-hand farm, the way we farm is as important as what we farm. We aim for efficiency
and high standards within the clear framework of farming as part of a sustainable environment.
Around 600 ha of the farm is
dedicated to livestock production,
farmed organically: a conversion
process which started in 2016.
Certified by Organic Farmers & Growers (OF&G) we have developed
our low-input farming further to reduce bought-in inputs and
demonstrate a self-supporting, sustainable farming system.
By managing the farm and wider landscape as one we benefit
both and help to promote natural biodiversity.
Rotations focus on fertility built
during grazing, then released back
into cereal feed: 5 years of fertility
build for 2 years of harvested crops.
