Foxburrow Farm is a diverse family run farming business based in Mid-Norfolk near the market town of Dereham. The farm manages 1,800 hectares of land, part-owned, part-tenanted and part-contracted. It is primarily a cereals and arable enterprise, but we also have a flock of 1,200 ewes and over 100 Red Poll cattle.
Our entire focus at the farm is set firmly on protecting the environment, improving our Bio-diversity and addressing water quality concerns within the Wensum Valley. We have adopted many principles which help us to achieve these aims, but the most notable is ‘Regenerative Agriculture’. This is a farming principle which is slowly gathering momentum in the UK, but is widely adopted in the USA. Fundamentally this principle means we return the soil/fields to their most natural state and mechanically disturb (plough/cultivation) them as little as possible, but utilise livestock and composts to enrich the soils ‘organic’ content.
