Farm Background: 23 ha of arable and agroforestry. The farm is entirely experimental, the main feature being a range of different agroforestry alley-cropping systems. There is one organic rotation in the alleys, with 6 different coppice and tree-crop systems.    In addition there is a wide range of arable and other trials mostly related to large EU-funded projects in the 7th Framework Programme. There are no livestock programmes. For more information, please visit the website here www.wakelyns.co.uk

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.

My organic hero

Janet Blikmans: Imagine a beautifully sunny day in August, not too hot, a few clouds in the sky, a slight breeze and rolling hills. I arrive on a 100 acre suckler farm in Wiltshire to spend the day with owner Miss Lydia Otter and farm manager Richard Hurford and many more people I meet throughout the day. As well as a small herd of organic Angus sucklers and their offspring (oh and the not so friendly bull Jaguar) there are chickens, donkeys, pigs, goats, dogs and a cat. When I arrive in the morning, like on any average farm, business is in full flow already.
