Enviromental Farming 

Throughout the year we manage the farmland to work in synch with the natural habitats.  We don't use any pesticides or herbicides as an organic farm and we work with experts to develop natural habitats for our native farmland bird and animal species. 

Farmland birds are under serious threat across the UK countryside as intensive farming undermines their habitats, here at Slade we've worked hard over the last 16 years to ensure that our bird populations are going up and becoming more diverse.  On our last bird count we were so pleased see over 50 yellowhammers over wintering on one of our designated wildlife areas. 

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.

People must feel that the natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure.
