What we hope to show on a visit
Great Wollaston is a LEAF demonstration farm where we use integrated farm management principles to run the farm. It involves the entire farm from office to woodland and beyond the farm itself. The aim is to be sustainable as possible; not only environmentally, that is a part of it but also financially and socially. The art is to balance all three aspects.
We think we are on the right track, a sort of work in progress. We are happy to show groups that book a visit what we do, and also learn from the groups.
We have a long term record of environmental work as recognised by various national awards.
In 2001 we won NFU and English Nature’s Biodiversity Award .
In 2011 we were in the final four of the RSPB wildlife farmer of the year
And in 2013 we were in the final three of Farmers’ weekly Countryside farmer of the year.
