Sustainable Solutions session: Collaborative farming
As farmers face increasing financial and environmental challenges, could collaboration be the answer? We hear from arable farmers working and learning from each other, new entrants and the wider community.
Tim May dares to think and behave differently. Having spent the past few years regenerating soil health and biodiversity, he now has six enterprising partners (from shepherds to mountain bikes and woodland burials) that are helping to grow and shape the future of Kingsclere Estate as a thriving circular community.
