We truly believe that there could be a lot more support to help farmers like ourselves, we are both passionate about wildlife and biodiversity and it is an integral part of how the farm works. We feel that farmers should be encouraged to have more Wildlife friendly farms with payments provided for doing so. If the urgent need to support our natural habitats is not addressed the next generation will be left with this generation's awful legacy.
We currently have a wild bird habitat on the farm in the form of seed rich cover crop where wild birds are thriving. We've have seen all sorts of birds benefiting from this area and has also brought in some amazing birds of prey to the farm. We have nest boxes put up around the farm in order to encourage nesting. We are hoping to put up owl boxes in the near future.
