Organic Farming at Wimpole
Farmland bird numbers have declined by 50% since 1970 and worms are absent from 40% of cultivated fields. Nature needs our help and in this talk and walk, Callum Weir, Farm Manager of Wimpole Estate, will explain how the National Trust is putting policy into practice by farming for nature. He will delve into Wimpole’s innovative farming history, share the trials and triumphs of organic farming, and show how farms can be the key to reversing nature’s decline. After the talk, join Callum for a walk-and-talk tour of one of our farm sites.
