Environmentally Friendly Farm, Northern Ireland
Farmers who actually care....
We always trying to be busy bees when it comes to actually looking after our farm and environment. Richard makes a keen effort not to spray through the day and goes out in the evening once the bees have gone back to their hives. We have also planted a large area in wild flowers this year and we will keep you posted on how this goes. Leona has completed the Bee Keeping course with, Roe Valley Bee Association to do the beginner class. She has now two bee hives, and is really enjoying the social aspect of having mentors to help her attend her bees. This is so beneficial for the environment.
We are always keen to work with any good bee keepers on our farm, please contact us, if you wish to place your bees in our fields.
We are delighted to be working with the RSPB as the North West Ambassador for championing of birds. We are very keen on barn owls, as Richard was very lucky to capture one on video last year in one of our barns. We now have two owl boxes located on our farm, and hope they will come back to stay soon!
We are looking forward to welcoming a wildlife surveyor to look at our farm to see what birds we have living and breeding at Broglasco. So far we have spotted lapwings, skylarks and yellowhammer - just some of the priority species in Northern Ireland.
