About the Event
Come to FarmED and see what we are up to on the farm as part of LEAF Open Farm Sunday.
Meet at 13:00 for a 13:30 introduction to FarmED in the conference barn followed by a farm walk to hear about regenerative agriculture and sustainable food systems.
The farm is a diverse mix of low input arable and temporary grass, and organic permanent pasture. Our trial plots include sainfoin, herbal ley, barley, heritage wheat, wild bird seed and various cover crops. The grassland is managed by mob grazed sheep.
Other features include a natural flood management scheme, heritage orchard, tree planting, wildflower margins and an apiary. Our kitchen garden is run as a Community Supported Agriculture scheme.
