New & Old: Traditional values & new technology
While we are very keen to maintain many traditional values (such high standards of hedge cutting & keeping on top of wall repairs) we have taken up many aspects of modern technology (such as GPS mapping) to keep us ahead with cost savings & efficiency.
Farm Manager Jake Freestone spoke at the 2013 Oxford Farming Conference on Precision Farming – watch the video.
There is an emphasis on conservation and we enjoy sharing with future generations what farming is about. We meet the rigorous environmental standards set by the farm’s LEAF Audit and LEAF MARQUE (LEAF is Linking Environment and Farming) which is in addition to our Farm Assurance standards (meaning our products can be sold with the Red Tractor Logo).
In late 2012 we became a LEAF Demonstration Farm.
