" Across the farm we are working to improve our soils. Regenerating the soil health has positive impact for not only our farm but the wider landscape and environment. Through the Riverlands project we are accessing funds to help us plant up to 1000 metres of new hedgerows reducing water run off and improving water infiltration."
