Handouts from the day

As part of the day, we tested the farm soils for organic matter percentage.

Download the results here.

One of the recommendations from the day was to re-test the fields 12 months later to see what the soil organic matter percentage was one year on.  Click here to see those results.

Interview with Stephen Goodwin.

Stephen Goodwin was our farmer speaker for the day and explained (very eloquently!) his farming system, what he learnt on his recent trip to America and what he is going to change on-farm since his trip.
