Edward Hall, Paley Farm Estate Manager. https://www.paleyfarm.co.uk/
After studying a Masters in Farm Management at the Royal Agricultural University and expanding his knowledge on commercial Organic farms in Oxfordshire and Berkshire, Edward moved to Paley Farm in 2017.
Once a thriving hop and top fruit farm, the 700 acre farm, including over 100 acres of woodland, now supports a flock of Romney ewes, Sussex cattle and a herd of native pigs. The certified Pasture for Life produce is sold through the on-site butchery supplying trade and retail locally and nationally.
The sheep and cattle graze varying types of grasses and herbs throughout the year, turning this into highly nutritious and tasty meat. Grassland is managed by rotationally grazing through the subdividing of fields. This practise improves the soils fertility, helping to grow more grass.
Edward will aim to set out the benefits of regenerative agriculture and how this method of working in harmony with nature, from woodlands to bees, to hedgerows and ponds, will safeguard the future of their business and the country side for the next generation.
