Ambios are tenants of 130 acres of mostly permanent pasture which we rent from The Sharpham Trust, where we farm organic beef and sheep. Approximately 80 acres of the farm is in Higher Level Stewardship, and the remainder comprises our Rewilding area which is in Higher Tier Countryside Stewardship. Alongside our livestock sales, we rely on these agri-environment stewardship schemes to provide a reliable income and maintain the financial viability of our farm. The future of how our farm, like many across the country, functions in a post-Brexit landscape is still unclear. New changes in agricultural policy are meant to offer significant potential for biodiversity improvement and climate change resilience. Whilst we welcome this approach, the financial implications of transitioning into these new schemes is uncertain and has left our business feeling vulnerable. In partnership with the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Ambios are interested to see what potential the river Dart catchment offers as a joined up landscape, with landowners working together to try to tackle some of the challenges of today.
