SWFC’s Tom and Nic Tolputt welcomed a group of esteemed academics from the University of Plymouth, Duchy College Rural Business School and Rothamsted Research to Tredudwell Manor for a day visit to discuss regenerative farming in early September
“The scientists joined us to find out more about how we’re learning to farm regeneratively here at Tredudwell Manor, and how modern farming systems are rapidly evolving with advances in knowledge and techniques to farm more sustainably,” explains Tom.

“We discussed the concept of regenerative agriculture in detail and the importance of soil health, as well as the role well-managed ruminants can play in providing high-quality food and helping to mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration, among other benefits. The visit involved a field walk as well as in-depth workshop sessions.”
“It really was a hugely inspiring and thought-provoking day, with many searching and challenging questions from the delegates. The workshop discussions were particularly rewarding.”
“The good news is that they all want to come back and learn some more … and our grassfed beef burgers went down a treat, too!”
Many thanks again to Tredudwell Manor for providing the perfect venue.
