We have always farmed with environmental sustainability in mind, and are deeply committed to the proactive conservation of biodiversity, habitats and the landscape. We are currently operating three Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) schemes over 1500ha within the business, which aims to deliver significant benefits in priority areas.
Working closely with Natural England, it is our intention to continue to support and manage these conservation areas for the foreseeable future. Our aim is to promote and maximise environmental sustainability, not only across the farmland, but also across the business as a whole. We are also members of Conservation Grade and the LEAF Marque scheme, which encourages sustainable food production. Farmers who qualify for the scheme are shown to produce food to exceptional standards whilst farming in an environmentally sensitive way.
