Herefordshire & Worcestershire Farmers visit Duchy Home Farm

Blessed with some late summer sunshine, the West Worcestershire/East Herefordshire Farm Resilience group took at trip to Duchy Home Farm, Gloucestershire.

The 770 ha organic farm, comprising of mixed livestock and arable production gave the group food for thought as the dairy, beef and sheep enterprises were all explored during the visit. The importance of woodland management, grassland management and the using of rare breed/heritage varieties all play an integral part in the running of this commercial farm.

The day was organised through the Prince’s Countryside Fund programme with funding from The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust.
