David and his wife, Hayley, farm Midloe Grange Farm, a lowland arable farm near Huntingdon on the Cambridgeshire/Bedfordshire border. The whole farm has been in a Countryside Stewardship Scheme (CSS) since 1992. As well as working full time on the farm, David provides agronomy services and gives nutritional advice to a number of local farms. He has also set up his own discussion group with local farmers.
“LEAF promotes what used to be called ‘good farming’. LEAF membership gives us a really useful framework to everything we do.”
I’ve been a member of LEAF since 1998 and became a LEAF Demonstration Farmer in 2000. I have always had a sympathetic approach to the environment and many LEAF principles match what we are doing on the farm. LEAF membership provides a really useful framework to everything we do and puts us ahead of the game in many respects
