Tuesday 15th June Nuffield Arable Group Visit
A visit in West Susex five miles South West of Gatwick.
Morning - A guided walk around the world famous Knepp Castle Estate hosted by owner Charles Burrell. https://knepp.co.uk/home Whether you are for, against or unsure as to the prospect of rewilding productive farmland there is no denying the idea is informing our new agricultural policy. The Knepp Castle Estate has proven a trail blazer in the rewilding story starting the process fifteen years ago. The story has been turned into a best selling book by Charles Burrell’s wife Isabella Tree in her work ‘Wilding’. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/jun/28/wilding-isabella-tree-review-farm-return-nature
Afternoon - Neighbouring the Knepp Castle Estate - A visit to Westons Farm curtesy of owner director David Elwood. Westons Farm is a 1000 ha farm let predominantly from Christs Hospital School which is located in the middle of the home farm. A truly mixed farm with 600 head of beef as well as sheep, pigs and greenhouses supplying a large and thriving Farm Shop. The 750 ha of arable is based around a long rotation with strong focuses on organic manures, soil health, no insecticides, biodiversity, carbon footprint, precision ag and high yields from the heavy clay soils of the Sussex Weald.
Numbers will be restricted because of Covid. We will operate on a first come first served basis. There will be no charge. Clearly Covid restriction will mean we cannot book accommodation or lunch as a group. However the plan is to notify people where we will all be going as strictly socially distanced individuals/couples. If we can keep Covid compliant we may try to organise an al fresco talk in the evening by a leading expert in carbon credit trading and/or ELMs prospects for arable farmers.
