Food vs Farming: Do we have to choose?

Loading Events

In 1991, leading regenerative farmer John Pawsey converted Shimpling Park Farm, Suffolk, to organic production amid concerns about soil health and wildlife decline. Since then, John has managed to reverse wildlife decline, improve soil health and make his farm profitable.

Jake Fiennes is the Conservation Manager at Holkham Estate, Norfolk and author of Land Healer. His habitat restoration and agricultural work at Holkham have enabled wildlife to flourish – bringing back wetlands, hedgerows, birds and butterflies over 25,000 acres of land – without sacrificing crop yields.

The two of them will recount the experiments and strategies which allowed them to find the right balance between habitat restoration and agricultural productivity.
