  • Social Impact

    The Pollybell team works on the farm and also ensures that we are a good neighbour, at home beyond the borders of our fields. All our team take active roles in the many communities our farm serves; the local community, farming, environment, research and education.

    Our Head Conservation Manager Miles Bentley regularly visits schools and welcomes pupils onto the farm to share his passion for wildlife and inspire an interest in conservation in local children.

    Peter Cornish, our Farm Director, is also involved in gardening clubs, giving talks and presentations to share his knowledge and expertise with members.

    We also support a number of open days and welcome hundreds of visitors from a number of local towns and villages and a variety of different organisations including the Soil Association, the Horticulture Development Council and the Royal Agricultural College.

    We share our farming knowledge and techniques as well as our experience with our farm environment with these visitors, all of whom are interested in how we farm at Pollybell

  • Environmental Impact

    Pollybell has over thirty million square feet of land in dedicated conservation management. We invest over £100,000 in conservation projects every year and we have two full time conservation officers in our team who manage these projects.

    Over the past 17 years have been busy caring for the hugely diverse habitats on the farm and complementing them where appropriate with owl boxes, bird feeding stations, tree and hedge plantings, pollen and nectar crops for bees and vetch and cereal strips for insects.

    All this work is carried out on a large scale. We have planted almost three thousand trees and twenty two thousand metres of hedgerows. That's enough to enclose every football pitch in the Premiership and Championship football divisions and still have enough to spare for the first seven teams in Division One.

    The health of our environment and ensuring thriving biodiversity are also central principles of our farming practice; for example, wild bird cover is drilled annually providing bird and animal habitat and one hundred and sixty hectares of winter stubble and this is not ploughed in until the following spring to provide shelter and food for wildlife.

    We are very proud of all the work we have completed so far and are delighted with the recognition received from the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) recording over one hundred and eighty different species of birds on the farm.
