Loddington Farm-09.jpg

farming with nature tours

Jump on the back of a tractor and while touring the farm learn
about Loddington Farm’s new approach to farming and how
they now focus on the soil and see the farm as a natural system rather than a production unit where nature is managed. Hear how they no longer apply synthetic fertilisers or herbicides to their soils and are phasing out fungicides and insecticides and how they plan to rebuild their soil ecosystem
and look at the nutrition of their crops while bringing nature back in to their orchards. At the end of the tour you’ll understand how this approach allows the farm to flourish with wildlife whilst producing the best food possible.
