Countryside Stewardship Scheme

We are taking part in the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and as such we are currently planting new hedgerows (over 900m) as well as creating and restoring ponds and scrapes.

We intend to increase the botanical and structural diversity of the farm through the cessation of inputs and the maintenance of late grazing regime. Reduce levels of diffuse pollution and buffer valuable habitats such as hedgerows and streams by establishing 5km of buffer strips and almost 4km of grass margins around arable fields.
