Newhouse Farm launch as a LEAF Demonstration Farm
At Hunt Forest Group we aim to offer support to our customers however we can, on Thursday 26th May we were proud to offer our support in the form of sponsorship to Newhouse Farm in Hampshire as it became the first Resilient & Ready farm launched as a LEAF Demonstration Farm.
Managed by Andy Bason for 10 years, the 800-hectare arable estate near Alresford, was one of four farms selected for the Resilient & Ready programme which supports farmers to become industry leaders in more sustainable, regenerative farming. Over the past three years, Andy has received technical support, training, resources, access to sustainability experts, innovative new products, and one-to-one mentoring – all designed to provide the skills, know-how and confidence to become an industry leader.
Newhouse Farm joins 38 other Demonstration Farms, which together with 14 Innovation Centres, make up the LEAF Network of leading farmers and world class research centres, developing and promoting more sustainable farming through Integrated Farm Management. The Estate was officially launched by Matt Culley, NFU Combinable Crops Board Chairman.
Congratulations to Andy and the team at Newhouse Farm, keep up the good work.
