Spring has sprung and you can hear the growth on site!

Spring has sprung in full force at Holly Hill Farm, and we couldn't be more excited! The past two weeks have seen incredible growth, with vibrant poppies and cornflowers blanketing the landscape. It's a testament to the hard work we've been putting into our overcropping and rewilding initiatives.

Our overcropping approach involves planting a dense mix of flowering plants amongst our established crops. This creates a beautiful and dynamic ecosystem that benefits both humans and wildlife. The flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, which are crucial for healthy fruit and vegetable production.

Meanwhile, the rewilding efforts are transforming underutilized areas of the farm into havens for native plants and creatures. These areas are bursting with life, providing valuable habitat for birds, insects, and small animals.

The visual impact is nothing short of stunning. Fields are awash with color, creating a breathtaking tapestry of nature's bounty. It's a far cry from the traditional, monoculture farming practices that can leave landscapes sterile and devoid of life.

But the benefits go far beyond aesthetics. Our combined overcropping and rewilding efforts are promoting biodiversity, improving soil health, and creating a more resilient farm ecosystem. This, in turn, leads to healthier crops and a more sustainable future for Holly Hill Farm.

We're so proud of the progress we've made so far, and we can't wait to see what the rest of the spring and summer hold
