About the event
Apart from the native trees planted we also incorporate flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs into the place. There are currently over 40 different species planted and more to come. Only this winter we planted two orchards as a trial , one is located within the native woodland and another one on the outside edge. As believers in the importance of diversity on farm we currently keep a small herd of cattle, a small flock of Sheep a variety of poultry as well as Bees and sometimes Pigs. Most of the animal produce is for the home. As different animals have different grazing patterns, the variety of animals play an important role in managing the land. Tres are also very important as they give shelter, firewood as well as fruit and nuts. We are hoping to increase the area planted in the coming years and continue to look for innovative ways to incorporate trees into the farming landscape.
