Permanent Pasture

The Honeydale Farm pastures are managed organically - no fertilisers or sprays are used. We currently manage with sheep using mob grazing, set-stocking and deferred grazing methods working with a local grazier. Cattle will be introduced in the near future. We also make late cut hay. 

 

In the UK we have lost 98% of our species rich permanent pasture since the 1940s. It’s one of our most precious habitats and landscape features. Our pastures are semi-improved - we are working to protect and enhance them.

 

You will also see historic ridge and furrow in our pastures - an archaeological pattern of ridges and troughs created by ancient ploughing methods.
