About Our Farm
In 2015 we decided to change our style of farming to assist wildlife
as much as we could. We started to direct drill into stubble land.
This alieviated ploughing and working land down to get a fine tilthe, as this has been proven to kill invertebrates, those that werent harmed had their homes broken up which in turn stopped them breeding.
Direct drilling is a system that only just cuts into the surface of the soil, releases the seed for growing and covers back over again.
We have noticed that there are many more worms in the fields as they are not being disturbed meaning they can continue to breed in peace.
This leaves wild birds a food source whilst land is getting airated
and drained by the worms.
This practice has increased wildlife on our farms and also removes the need to work the fields by 2 to 3 times a year leaving a more enviromentally
friendly atmosphere for all of our wildlife.
