Farms and farming

Working with farmers in Shropshire, naturally.

70% of England is farmed.

We believe an ambitious, long term vision, underpinned by well thought through rural investment, is required to support both our agricultural industry and wildlife. 

At Shropshire Wildife Trust, we understand that agriculture provides a range of public goods and services. It is a business and needs to be respected as such, We approach our work with farmers in the same way we do with other industry sectors: open minded, progressive and looking for win-win solutions.

The Wildlife Trusts believe that agriculture plays an important part in building ‘the rural economy’, should be seen as an ‘investment opportunity’ and profitable farming has a critical role to play alongside the provision of a range of ecosystems services.
