New nursery site


We have now bought 6.5 acres of south facing pasture land on which we will move the nursery to over the next few years.
These photos were taken this June in the middle of the dry spell we had.
It has now greened up nicely since the rains.
Plans for the new site include obtaining organic status, planting lots of willow and alder to use as ramial chipped wood and Biochar and creating a highly biodiverse closed loop system with the aim of becoming a carbon negative fruit tree nursery.
The fruit trees will be grown in an alley cropping system and rotated to different areas with a 7 year rotation for apple trees.
I’d like to find someone who would be interested in growing verge on a small commercial scale to fit in with the rotation…
