6th July 2023
Each of the events this year promises to have something for everyone! Whether you’re new to this topic and just curious, or a farmer looking for practical take-home strategies to implement and enhance what you are already doing on your farm, through to those who want to follow a full regenerative journey, then Down to Earth North and South are for you.
On Wednesday, 21st June, dairy farmer Neil Baker will open his gates at Haselbury Plucknett, Somerset, for visitors to see his high-yielding indoor herd of 1,800 predominately Holstein cows in action. Neil is one of Arla’s regenerative pilot farms, so will outline some of the projects he is working on.
Then, on Thursday, 6th July, Mark and Jenny Lee, Park House Farm, Torpenhow, Cumbria, will showcase their OF&G licensed organic unit. Their farm consists of 175 milking crossbred cows, certified 100% pasture fed by Pasture for Life and mob-grazed on a 30-40 day rotation using 2.5km of grazing tracks.
