Holly Hedgerows

We are very lucky that our dairy is situated in what (we think) is one of the most beautiful corners of the world. From our site there are some breath-taking views down the Holme Valley and beyond, so you could say there's an element of selfishness in wanting to protect our local environment.

One thing we've been doing, with the help of Lucie, Joanne, Natasha and Cheryl, is planting holly bushes as a way to encourage local wildlife, and provide a shelter belt and better foraging environment for all sorts of animals. The holly bush hedgerows will also help to prevent soil erosion, and will act as snow and wind breaks when the weather up here gets a bit wild.
