Join the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association and the Groundswell team, in the run up to this year's conference, for a discussion of three different approaches in the UK to pasture cropping. Well documented in other parts of the world, we hear from the UK pioneers to understand how these practices are being translated to the UK farming landscape and climate. Andrew Brewster farms with his brother, Robert, in Forfar, Scotland and has been trialling pasture cropping over three seasons. Andy Cato farms in South West France, where he has been pioneering pasture cropping methods. More recently he has started Wildfarmed Grain in the UK to create a market for grain from pasture cropping and is working with a number of farms. Andy Howard farms in Kent and after doing a Nuffield Scholarship on the subject of companion- and inter-cropping, where he travelled the world looking at different approaches, which he is now trialling in the UK.
The session will be chaired by John Cherry, certified Pasture for Life farmer at Weston Park Farms in Hertfordshire and founder of the Groundswell Agriculture conference.
The session will be 90 minutes long and there will be ample time for Q&A.
