Another Technical Forum is set to take place in just a few weeks’ time with Martin Hole, leading a discussion entitled ‘Farming in the age of ecology’.
- 14 July 2022
- 6pm – 7pm
Martin farms with his family on the western edge of the Pevensey Levels. The farm is all grass, three quarters being wet grazing marshes. Organic since 1997, the land supports a flock of about 550 Romney ewes and a suckler herd of around 60 mixed native crossbred suckler cows. Aiming for profit from nil input, medium output and premium value is not always plain sailing, especially when marking success through a range of biodiversity indicators. There is much else other than a vague obsession with Lapwing. Recent diversification includes a wedding venue, and future hopes centre on an ever more ambitious progress of the land back to a wetland of international importance and the passing of a viable business to the next generation.
This informal talk will be online at 6pm. Booking is required, please reserve your space here
