I used to manage a 2000 estate in Norfolk growing cereals ,oilseeds, pulses, sugar beet and letting land for seed potatoes with and without irrigation, with a comprehensive stewardship scheme, let cottages a DIY livery and an in hand shoot.

Including but not limited to capital grants, countryside stewardship and ways to improve the quality of air, soil and water in a challenging environment and preparing for ELM and studying regenerative farming and encouraging sustainability.
