It is timely to look at ways of improving the profitability of upland farm businesses since, in England and Wales at least, direct payments in their current form are proposed to be phased out from Therefore, it is important that farms start to look at how they can become more resilient economically without direct payments.

The Hills and Uplands Deliver for Food Livestock farming is the dominant enterprise of the uplands using 70 per cent of the land and underpinning rural economies [4]. The uplands are home to 44 per cent of breeding ewes and 40 per cent of beef cows in England, 85 per cent of beef cows and 75 per cent.

NSA is a Company Limited by sheep can be found in upland and hill areas: in England 41% of breeding Guarantee registered in England sheep are found on LFA farms; 63% of cattle and sheep holdings are in LFAs (No. ) and a Registered Charity • in England and Wales (No) and LFAs in Scotland are home to 91% of breeding Size: 2MB.

Just three years ago, England's outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) seemed a catastrophe for rural and farm tourism. Across the UK, 80% of country parks, 90% of farms and more than one-third of historic properties were closed to visitors.

FARM TOURISM Rural and farm tourism, as a category of alternative tourism, is a growing sector of tourism. The growing number of tourists venturing into rural regions, and the limited and spasmodic research in the farm tourism sector, suggests that empirical research in this area is needed.

Owen will take over the farm with his young family when David retires, but he has been working as a teacher for the past 10 years because the farm could not support both families – until they began their Feather Author: Lucy Gillmore.

Hill farming is extensive farming in upland areas, primarily rearing sheep, although historically cattle were often reared extensively in upland areas. Fell farming is the farming of fells, a fell being an area of uncultivated high ground used as common grazing. It is a term commonly used in Northern England, especially in the Lake District and the Pennine Dales.

Elsewhere, the terms hill farming or pastoral. Characteristics of a Hill Sheep Farm. There are three zones of land use: The fell: the tops of the hills over m altitude – sheep graze on this open land in the summer; The intake or lower slopes: divided into fields by dry stone walls, some pasture is improved by adding drainage and fertilisers; The inbye: the small area of land on the valley floor close to the farm buildings – more.

The Hills Are Dead. Without farm subsidies, there would be scarcely any hill farming in Europe: the activity is uneconomic almost everywhere and will remain so under all conceivable market conditions, as a result of poor soils and harsh climate. It has stripped the wildlife habitat from almost the entire upland area of England and Wales.

The switch to area-based farm payments, which began in the s, is perhaps the most important change in the history of grazing these moors. Farmers began to see low hill. Upland grazing, in other words, contributes to a cycle of flood and drought.

This restricts the productivity of more fertile lands downstream, both drowning them and depriving them of irrigation water. Given the remarkably low output in the upland areas of Britain, it is within the range of possibility that hill farming creates a net loss of food.

We try and get out and about as much as possible, and teach the girls about the natural world.
