LEAF Demonstration Farm

On Friday 7th July we were launched as an official LEAF Demonstration Farm. Will Gemmill National Head of Farming for Strutt and Parker preformed the ceremonial tree planting to mark the openning with some forty plus guests that were invited from agriculture, wildlife and educational related organisations, other LEAF farmers as well as a few local farmers. LEAF chairman Stephen Fell introduced the LEAF organisation and Alice Midmer the Intergrated Farm Management Manager explained the role of being a Demonstration farm. Guests were then given a taster farm walk looking at some of the ways the we use IFM to help manage and improve our business.

We are very proud to have now joined the network of 40 other LEAF Demonstration Farmers http://www.leafuk.org/leaf/consumers/visitafarm/LEAFdemonstrationfarms.eb that do a fantastic job promoting the benefits of IFM and sustainable farming.
