In this video, Suzanne Fletcher from the Peak District National Park and Tom Munro from the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty explain the Farming in Protected Landscapes application process and give you some ideas of the projects you could do on your farm.
A view from the farm
Some of our colleagues are also farmers. In this post, Ben Keene and Brian Longman introduce the Defra Farmer's Forum, the group which brings them together. They also share their stories. In the months that follow, we’ll hear from more farmers who either work in the Future Farming and Countryside Programme or support our work from their teams elsewhere in Defra.
My name is Harry Baker Cresswell. I farm Preston Mains Farm in Northumberland. I have been involved in tests and trials since 2018. It has been a great opportunity for myself and the 52 other farmers in the 23 Burns Collective to help Defra co-design the new environmental land management schemes. I'd like to share my view.
