Farm Background: 23 ha of arable and agroforestry. The farm is entirely experimental, the main feature being a range of different agroforestry alley-cropping systems. There is one organic rotation in the alleys, with 6 different coppice and tree-crop systems.    In addition there is a wide range of arable and other trials mostly related to large EU-funded projects in the 7th Framework Programme. There are no livestock programmes. For more information, please visit the website here www.wakelyns.co.uk

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.
