Ecological Focus Areas
6th December 2017
As part of Longford Farms commitment to EFA whereby 5% of every agricultural holding has to be ‘setaside’ for greening, we have evaluated areas that would most beneficial not only wildlife and
archaeological features but also the way we plan our cultivations.
Boundaries have therefore been redefined and buffer strips or grass margins against hedges have been considered the most beneficial.
Other areas are treated as fallow which has no grazing on it, but which is maintained in a state for grazing or cultivation.
