I have a small, all arable farm. My crops include winter wheat, spring barley, oilseed rape and vining peas for Bird’s Eye. I aim to grow crops for premium/specialist markets. For example my oilseed rape is used to make a healthier form of vegetable oil. In addition, I operate a contracting business offering cultivation, spraying, fertilising and seed drilling services to other farmers. I also provide independent advise to other farmers on the management of their crops. I try to make my farming as sustainable as possible and to produce healthy, nutritious food. A key focus is to improve the health of the soil on my farm because healthier soil produces healthier crops. I plan to achieve this by minimising cultivations, growing a diverse range of crops and adding organic matter (compost and manure). I am often found digging up spade fulls of soil to count the worms!
