The backyard farm co-op
returning nutrients to the land.
We practice closed loop agriculture’. The principle is that the farm recycles all nutrients and organic matter back to the soil – this preserves the nutrient and carbon levels within the soil and allows farming to be carried out on a sustainable basis using less inputs. If the UK were to operate a largely ‘closed loop’ system, it would help tackle climate change and slow our demand on the earth’s scarce resources. Our aim is create small scale farms. Giving the next generations of farmers, horticulturalist, flower growers, beekeepers, microgreen growers the helping hand they need to invest their energy, skill and passion to securing our regional food security.
