Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - FREE Farming for Resilience Events: Northern Protected Landscapes
Nidderdale AONB has asked the Parish Council to publicise a number of free events it is organising:
Nidderdale AONB has been working with sustainable farming expert, Niels Corfield, since August 2022, and after the positive response from farmers and land managers, they have teamed up with the Nature Friendly Farming Network to offer more events throughout 2023 as part of their Farming for Resilience workshop series.

These workshops are designed to help farmers build resilience by improving soil health, reducing reliance on costly artificial inputs and adopting grazing systems through whole-farm planning for greater sustainability. We will explore the role soil biology plays in agricultural performance, pasture health and farm viability and what practices can be used to support healthy soils.
Niels will provide practical guidance on natural ecosystem processes and how farmers can work with these processes to improve farm system efficiency. He can also provide advice on a range of farming topics from equipment choice to slurry management.
- Tuesday 18 July: Weatherproof Farming, Darley, Harrogate
- Thursday 20th July: Grazing and Pasture Management Demo Day (with BBQ) with Niels Corfield, Pasture for Life and Farm Carbon Toolkit
- Tuesday 6 November: Weatherproof Farming, Grewelthorpe, Ripon
- Thursday 9 November: Improving Soil Health, Grewelthorpe, Ripon
Other workshops and demonstration days are to be confirmed.
