The Agricology project: Practical Sustainable Farming, regardless of labels

About Tim Field

A rural upbringing encouraged my interest in land management, whilst a passion for nature and country sports led me to study environmental and behavioural biology. This interest was nurtured through practical experience as an environmental consultant for Royal Haskoning before joining Daylesford in 2007.

Since joining Daylesford I completed a Rural Surveying degree to further support Carole Bamford’s enterprises and developments on the farm, retail operations and the charitable Foundation. We strive to push the boundaries of sustainable food production.

I advise on matters of sustainability across the Daylesford Organic brand, agriculture and properties, and sit on the Board for the Daylesford Foundation. Maintaining biodiversity has been the primary motivation for my involvement with agriculture. With 70% of the British landscape producing food, and with millennia of farming practices shaping our rich biodiversity, sustainable farming is very important to me.

I am happiest when walking through the UKs rich habitats whilst stalking, trout fishing, working my pointer or simply spotting wildlife. One of the most satisfying moments of my career was observing 50 snipe rising out of a purpose-built flood meadow at Daylesford within six weeks of completing the habitat creation works.

Do you want to make your farming more sustainable?

AGRICOLOGY is a collaboration of independent organisations and farmers providing practical information about sustainable farming. We focus on agroecological principles. We encourage good agricultural practice based on research and experience from a range of farming sectors.

By providing access to the most relevant information selected from practical, applied and academic sources, we enable you to make informed choices. The partners and contributors have come together to share information that will help secure a profitable, productive, sustainable future for your farm.
