SOIL HEALTH

Supported by Cumbria Wildlife Trust and a team of soil researchers and ecologists co-ordinated by Lancaster University we have been awarded a Soil Association Innovative Farmer grant. 

This study will take place over a two year period during which we will study the soil health and its structure across the various members' farms.  We will focus on the different management practices and how these impact the soil, its structure and health and ultimately its productivity. 

Through lab research and on farm studies we will work towards a better understanding of our soil and how practical changes in our farming techniques can impact and improve this.
