Tuesday 3rd July
Near Horsham, West Sussex

This event will give CPRE members the opportunity to learn about a new and successful sustainable farming project within our county.

The Knepp Castle Estate covers 3500 acres and has been in the ownership of the Burrell family for over 220 years. In 2001 the traditional way of farming on the estate ended when the focus shifted entirely to conservation. A series of significant regeneration and restoration projects were initiated aimed primarily at nature and conservation with less intensive methods of meat production. We will be taken on a guided tour of the estate in a tractor and trailor so numbers will be limited.

Donations on the day
No tea provided but the owner is happy for members to bring a picnic, weather permitting
