Conservation is a key consideration for all farming operations with an emphasis on a wide variety of natural habitats and a diverse wildlife.
Water courses have a buffer zone left to ensure no contamination from agricultural activities and to allow for undisturbed wildlife corridors throughout the farms. All straw produced is either chopped directly behind the combine or sometimes swapped with local cattle farmers and returned as manure to continuously enrich the fields and add organic matter to reduce fertilizer use.
In 2008 East Ardler Farm was FWAG audited. The aim of the audit was to identify the features and aspects of the land that have the potential for improved environmental gain and business benefit.
