10,000 YEARS OF FARMING

We have had a report / survey done on the farm where I live

Part of the report says this is a rich agricultural landscape and has been the scene of intensive human activity /farming for the last 10,000 years. 

 This means the same soil we are growing food on now has been used by farmers through the ages.  That is the Yorkshire Wolds for you!

Pity at the moment it’s so difficult in farming. 

There has been a dairy herd here since the 1940’s but we cannot afford to keep it going.

But it’s great to think that the soil of the Yorkshire Wolds may be providing food for the next 10,000 years.
