If we have a farm walk in your area, don’t miss it!

We have three farm walks coming up, and we hope you’ll be able to join us to learn more about both the value, and future, of growing miscanthus.

We welcome farmers, landowners, land agents, agricultural bank managers, advisor’s and consultants and anyone who’s interested in making better returns from marginal land.

Our first walk this autumn will be on 13th October at Hackthorn Farm, The Little Grange, Welton, Lincoln, LN2 3RA by kind permission of Jim Beeden.

This will be followed on 29thOctober by a visit to Friars Farm, Morningthorpe, Norfolk, NR15 2QL, by kind permission of David and Christopher Sargent

Our third walk will be on 3rd December at The Buttery, Kynnersley, Telford, Shropshire, TF6 6EG, by kind permission of Colin and Sheila Webb

Please put the dates in your diary now, as we’re expecting a lot of interest in these exciting events.

Each day will follow the same programme:

10:30  Arrival and coffee;

10:45  The market for miscanthus- what it is, what the benefits are, and how Terravesta works to make the most of the crop;

11:30  A farm walk with your host:
This gives you an opportunity to question your host and the team from Terravesta, see the crop, discuss the establishment and growing techniques, and evaluate how miscanthus will fit into your farm rotation;

13:00  Return to the farm offices for a light lunch;

13:30  A summary of the day and a chance to hear more details about the Terravesta offer.

Delegates usually leave around 14:00, but are welcome to remain to ask further questions, or discuss growing options.

 Come along if you’re interested in finding out about the following:

  •  Finding an alternative to your current rotation
  • Looking for a guaranteed income
  • Wanting better returns from marginal land
  • Fighting blackgrass resistance
  • Looking for an easy to manage crop
