Last Friday, we visited Acorn Farm, the home of Andrew Parsons, the speaker who gave an excellent talk ‘Farming with Wildlife’ earlier in spring. We were treated to a tour of the farm on the back of a trailer, pulled by a tractor, driven by Andrew’s son and escorted by the sheepdog! We had chance to see the wide borders planted to encourage birds and wildlife, as well as walk along the top of the flood defences alongside the River Trent. Andrew also introduced us to their herd of cows, bulls and calves.
It was a lovely evening, enjoyed by all those who came along.
