Knepp Estate Visit

At 6.30 am On August 6, I was fortunate to accompany 12 local farmers and land managers on a bus. We drove the 5 hour jouney to Knepp Estate in Sussex on a bus. Knepp Castle Estate comprises 3,500 acres of heavy weald clay in West Sussex. Though farmed intensively since WW2, the farm rarely made a profit. Rewilding has turned this around. Knepp has attracted support from Natural England through the Higher Level Stewardship scheme. And its focus on rewilding has prompted successful spin off enterprises. The farmland is now profitable. From the start, the project benefitted from the vision of an influential advisory group. This included the Dutch ecologist Frans Vera and CEO of Sussex Wildlife
