Chris Clark, a Partner in Nethergill Associates, and NFFN England Chair says: 

“About 3 years ago, while I was a Dales farmer I began to notice some amazing comments from farmers in the north. Some were making decisions about their future for profitability reasons or to ensure that the next generation takes over their farms. In ‘winding down’, they experienced an increase in their profitability.

“This was a reflection of my own efforts to make Nethergill a profitable farm by reducing stock numbers and reducing inputs. Although it seemed counterintuitive and made no sense, I was a farmer who had taken the agricultural college views and never challenged them.

“Then, I discovered there were two costs to working with nature. what is naturally and freely available such as soil or grass and what’s the cost of substituting for it such as feed or fertilizer. The first is a high-priced expense that attempts drive production beyond its natural capabilities. The farmer is responsible for replacing the natural fertility and health of the soil if it becomes exhausted. What’s the solution? The solution?

The Nature Means Business conference is followed by a series of free visits to NFFN farms across the UK, to witness this work in action
