ES Case Study: Stud Farm, Yorkshire (AE018)

Mr Whittaker has farmed Stud Farm, his 22 hectare holding in Yorkshire, for over 50 years. Built in 1898 as the stud to the adjacent 17th century Plainville Hall, it was used for dairy production until 1970 and then let off for grazing. Mr Whittaker went into retirement in 1994 but when his tenant vacated he decided to indulge his passion for conservation and enter into a Countryside Stewardship Scheme Agreement to enhance the environmental features on his land.
