Our Farming Future
Our goal is:
To manage 1,000 hectares of productive farmland for soil health. Whilst growing food we will be showcasing regenerative practices and innovating into new farming and land management techniques.
On farm we are seeing the effects of climate change disrupting the natural ecosystems.
For the past 16 years we have been perfecting systems to grow carbon negative, biodiversity enhancing food. We want to act as a showcase farming business.
Regenerative Farm Management
We have been implementing regenerative techniques for 16 years.We have learnt a lot. We can ensure you don’t make the mistakes we did. We are now looking to support other landowners in improving the health of their soil and bank balance.
Quote from landowner: “I find the Gentle Farming team efficient and easy to deal with.
I have never seen my soils and my bank balance looking so healthy”
Selling Regenerative Produce
We are selling directly, to connect people with regenerative farming.
Our products are: Carbon negative, Chemical free, Biodiversity building, Nutrient dense and Affordable
