Wild Trout Trust Awads

Posted: 26th October 2016

"Incredibly smart work" is how the judges of the Wild Trout Trust Conservation Awards described the Natural Flood Management at Honeydale Farm. Ian Wilkinson, farmer at Honeydale and MD of Cotswold Seeds, attended the awards ceremony at The Savile Club in London this week, along with other nominees. The Wild Trout Trust is a conservation charity that supports and encourages projects to improve and protect habitats in and around rivers and lakes, and nominees were chosen for their practical work to improve wetland habitats for trout and all wildlife across the UK and Ireland. 

The Natural Flood Management Scheme at Honeydale involved rerouting a natural spring to create a series of leaky dams and scrapes as well as the planting of trees to create wildlife habitats and help prevent flooding in the catchment area of the Evenlode River.

About Us

It's always been part of our vision to have a farm as an extension of the Cotswold Seeds business and in 2013 we bought Honeydale Farm, one hundred acres in the Cotswolds. During the past couple of years we've been making huge progress on the farm and this blog was set up to share this progress with our friends in the farming world.
