I was fortunate enough to be given a remote outdoor camera for christmas (from Brian) so hopefully and time goes on we can build up a more thorough picture of more of the wildlife that is about on the farm. On day 1 I put it up in the Dutch Barn just to see how it worked and was rewarded with the picture below. I will share what I find as I find it... PJB.
- The Barker Boys
- Cousins working together on our family owned farm with the aim of running a commercial modern farm producing high yielding, high standard crops while maximising wildlife diversity. Brian is said to be the farmer and conservationist, whereas Patrick is a conservationist and farmer. This mix has given a new direction for the farm, building upon the work that our fathers and grandfather has done to improve the overall success of the farm business. The farm has gone from strength to strength with the farm being recognised at a national level winning the coveted National FWAG’s Silver Lapwing Award for farming and conservation in 2009 and then Patrick and Brian were named Countryside Farmer of the Year by the Farmers Weekly in 2010.
