Over 90% of the land managed by R&P Farming has a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme associated with it. As a large proportion of this land has been designated as having a high level of environmental significance, farming in harmony with our surroundings is a primary priority of the business.
R&P Farming undertakes a wide range of environmental options such as non-inversion tillage over scheduled monuments, buffer strips next to water courses and managing woodland edges.
The farm spreads approximately 5,000 tonnes of composted green waste material each year which is made up of grass clippings and mulch. This helps to raise the organic matter of our sandy Devon soils.
