In 2007 the farm entered a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme, a ten year agreement with Natural England. The main aim of the scheme is to create a mosaic of farm diversity from traditional grazing methods to modern day precision farming, complementing the landscape.
The protection of flora and fauna by creating habitat as well as safeguarding ancient woodland and downland is of paramount importance.
The options taken under the scheme to achieve the aim included:
Red Tractor Assurance means that the farm is assessed on a yearly basis to make sure that it adheres to the Red Tractor standards. Wildlife and the Environment plays a significant role in the accreditation and therefore, the Red Tractor logo demonstrates the farms responsible protection of the environment.
