Regenerative Agriculture

Our industry needs to re-learn how to farm in harmony with nature. Encouraging a return to the mixed farm, where livestock are used as tools to heal the land between crops, is seen as a vital part of this solution.

Specialisation on farms has led to the disappearance of livestock from many holdings: Large expanses of East Anglia and other arable areas are cropped every year and the main source of fertility is from artificially manufactured products. For a long time, this appeared to be a sensible solution to the increasing demand for more food, to feed an expanding population.

However, we are starting to see serious problems in soil quality, soil erosion and water & food quality as a result of adopting a wholly chemical-based system of farming. We are also beginning to lose the battle with nature: Problem pests, weeds and diseases are evolving more quickly than we can develop new synthetic controls. 

What is Regenerative Agriculture?

Our industry needs to learn - or re-learn - how to farm in harmony with nature. Encouraging a return to the mixed farm, where livestock are used as tools to heal the land between crops, is seen as a vital part of this solution.

The Regenerative livestock team will:

  • focus on encouraging arable farmers to re-introduce grazing and other livestock back onto their holdings.

  • Consider the mental and physical barriers that currently prevent this from happening whilst developing solutions to overcome these barriers.

  • Provide and facilitate training and mentoring, whilst communicating best practices and pointers for success.

  • focus on ways to do this profitably, regenerating and healing the land, and helping to make the business economically sustainable and viable for the long term.
