National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

08 April 2019

YFC members are being offered the chance to visit a LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) demonstration farm – Clacks Farm, (part of Crowmarsh Battle Farms Ltd) – to learn more about conservation management and running a sustainable business.  

The farm visit, which has been set up by the NFYFC AGRI Steering Group, will give 20 YFC members a  free opportunity to discuss diversification projects, conservation and arable farming.

YFC members will see Crowmarsh Battle Farms Ltd's whole farm approach, where rotations, the selective use of inputs and efficient use of resources is balanced with planned environmental management to make a truly sustainable business.

The Chamberlain family has been farming at Benson for over a hundred years and Philip Chamberlain is the third generation to run the family business. The farm is an all arable enterprise of 3000 acres. Conservation management has always been seen as complementary to profitable arable farming and Crowmarsh Battle Farm follows LEAF and Integrated Farm Management (IFM) principles.

The evening will be a great opportunity to further the future environmental land management system conversation started at the YFC AGRI Take Control of Your Future event at Bakewell in February.

There are twenty places for this free event and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Visit EventBrite to book your tickets
