It is always good to visit other farms to learn, as my hero Joel Salatin puts it, you can always learn something from a visit to another farm. Last week Richard and I visited the lovely Nigel and Wendy Griffith at their farm in Kent, Landews Meadow Farm.
One of our main motivations for visiting was to learn about their work with the methods of Dr Elaine Ingham to make and use compost to improve soil biology. You can read about what we learned about this here on our sister site dedicated to our discoveries about Elaine Ingham’s methods, Green Mantle.
But there is far more to Landews Meadows Farm than the compost heaps, so it would be remiss of me not to share something else of what we learned! This is just a few edited highlights that are particularly relevant to The Oak Tree, do visit their comprehensive web page to find out more
A huge thank you to Nigel and Wendy for welcoming us to their beautiful, innovative and productive farm!
