Farmers can learn about growing crops for game and wildlife at a free event being held by the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) near Berwick.

The meeting and farm walk at Hunting Hall Farm, Beal, north Northumberland, will take place from 10am-12.30pm on Thursday by kind permission of Tom and Karen Burn and attended by industry experts.

Attendees will be able to learn about seed mix selection, establishment techniques and general agronomy as well as a farm walk to look at game and conservation plots.

“There will be an overview of CFE and input from CFE partners on fitting environmental management with commercial farming,” said Fraser Hugill, regional coordinator for CFE Yorkshire and the North East.

“There seems to be demand to learn more about growing the right seed mixes to benefit both game and wildlife and to be able to get the best results from them.”

Booking is essential. Contact Amanda Cornforth at CFE Yorkshire and the North East on 07432 562198 or email yorkshirenortheast@cfeonline.org.uk
