Award date: 7th February 2019

More details

Alan and Alison try to enhance wildlife at Lower Wigginstall by using farming practices that aren't intensive - allowing sheep and cattle to graze a range of pastures. Building improvements mean that cows are now in loose housing over winder - "exercising all the time, doing as cows should do".
