Seed Mixtures

Countryside Stewardship and the new Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) are useful government programmes to enable us to farm in a more environmentally friendly manner, whilst hopefully improving our farms and maintaining food production. We can supply the seed you require for any and all of the current schemes. A few of the most popular mixtures are featured below, but do please call with your specific enquiries.



3 – 5 Year Duration
A very popular option due to its better payment rate, and that it shouldn’t need any expensive artificial fertiliser (none allowed under the scheme rules). We have studied the guidelines to design a mix that is fully compliant, yet maximises your forage production. Mainly a grazing ley for sheep and cattle, that can be cut.
