Providing tailored advice to farmers and landowners in the Chilterns to help them maximise opportunities for wildlife on their land and apply for agri-environment grants
I was employed by the Chilterns Conservation Board to survey four large farms in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and provide comprehensive advice to maximise the farm's potential for wildlife. I suggested potential options for Countryside Stewardship. Two of these farmers have since been invited to apply for the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) pilot scheme.
I have completed Countryside Stewardship applications on behalf of clients, ensuring that their aspirations are met and options are integrated with the farm business.
