Looking for shade! On a red hot day yesterday farmers discussed the benefits of hedges and trees for shade and shelter as well as securing boundaries. This was one aspect of the benefits of creating wildlife habitat alongside food production that Countryside Stewardship, and the new Farming in Protected Landscapes funding can help farmers with in the North Pennines and Fellfoot Forward Landscape Partnership areas.
The Farmer Network worked with advisers and partners to help farmers find out about the help available at the on-farm event at Hallbankgate. Many Thanks to all involved.
