ES Press Release: South Downs farmer celebrates 25 years of environmentally friendly farming (AE029)

Orchids, grey partridges and corn buntings are thriving on a farm on the South Downs thanks to 25 years of farming in an environmentally friendly way.
Harry Goring of the Wiston Estate was one of the first farmers in the country to sign up to the Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA) Scheme in 1987, which paid farmers to safeguard and enhance areas of landscape, biodiversity and cultural importance.
