Farm Visit – Portloughan Farm, Strangford
Following our Nature Means Business conference, our NFFN steering group members will be hosting farm visits across the UK. This is a great opportunity to see farming with nature in action and these tours will provide an insight into how nature can positively impact business, through reduced inputs and improved natural capital. This is also a chance to meet other like-minded nature-friendly farmers!
All farm visits are free and spaces are limited. Book your place on any of the below farm visits by emailing Rhys – email@example.com. Name, email address and phone number will be required to book.

Along with his wife, Alison, they plant in difficult farming areas with funding from the NI Department of Agriculture’s Farm Woodland Planting Scheme.
