5th Generation Organic Dairy Farmer, South Cumbria
The Robinson’s have farmed at Strickley in south Cumbria for almost 150 years. James & his family now have 300 acres of organic land with 130 pedigree Dairy Shorthorns and 130 followers grazing meadows, permanent pasture and herbal leys in small fields, surrounded by 7 miles of ancient hedgerows. These hedgerows are managed in a traditional 20 year rotation of hedgelaying and link a mixture of diverse habitats such as wetlands, species rich hay meadows and ancient oak woodland.
