Soil Farmer of the Year 2020 Winning Farm walk with Jake Freestone

Soil Farmer of the Year 2020 Winning Farm walk with Jake Freestone

Event date: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 10:30 to 12:30

Come along and fine out more about why Jake Freestone has been awarded one of the winners of the 2020 Soil Farmer of the Year. 

Jake farms over 2000ha at Overbury estate in Gloucestershire across a range of soil types. Included in the estate are 950 ha of combinable crops, and a flock of 1100 ewes. Jake has been working on soil management since 2015 when he changed his cultivation and has been predominantly no till since then. Jake is using cover crops and grass leys to protect soil and minimise erosion and has changed the rotation to incorporate his sheep onto his arable ground to build fertility. He is using companion cropping and is starting to experiment with biological additions to further stimulate his soil life. He is currently working on reducing Nitrogen use and moving the sheep grazing to a paddock grazing system.

The event will take place at Overbury Farms and run from 10.30 - 12.30. Due to COVID restrictions, places will be strictly limited and there will be social distancing and hygiene measures in place. After the event, there will be a wide range of resources from the walk hosted on the Farm Carbon Toolkit website for those unable to join in person.

Due to the changing situation regarding COVID, the final decision on the event going ahead will be taken 7 days previously. If the face to face meeting has to be cancelled, the event will take place online instead.

For more information please get in touch with Becky Willson on [email protected] or visit our Eventbrite page for booking.
