Great Berwick Organics
Sam Barker - Great Berwick Organics - Shropshire
120 acres in Shropshire. The Longhorns play a harmonious role in our organic cereal production. The cows eat the clover rich grass and at the same time the clover is working wonders under the surface by locking in the naturally occuring nitrogen. This in turn helps to produce better crop yields. Then the manure produced by the cows adds essential organic matter and nutrients to the soil structure. As Organic Farmers (regulated by Organic Farmers & Growers) we don't use any chemicals or artifcial chemicals. Instead we harness and work with nature.
We are also in the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme which has resulted in field headlands full of flora and fauna and a whole farm habitat that Charles Darwin would have been proud of!
