The Estate are pleased to report that our growing Home Farm has been approved again this year under the Red Tractor Assurance scheme. The scheme is the UK’s largest food standards scheme, covering all the areas you care about – animal welfare, food safety, trace-ability and environmental protection. Working with experts in their fields, the scheme ensures that families across Britain have access to safe, quality food that has been grown and reared in the UK to rigorous farming standards. Independent assessors perform checks at every step of the food journey from farm to packet, so that people can be sure that it is traceable, safe and farmed with care. The Red Tractor is only found on food and drinks that are sourced from UK farms and have been checked from farm to basket. By looking for the Red Tractor, you are choosing food you can trust, as well as helping provide support and security for British farmers and food producers.

Extensive grazing on two more of Mulgrave Estate’s heather moorlands is already showing beneficial signs in terms of moorland habitat recovery. The heather moorlands were struggling to compete with gorse and purple moor grass which over time will smother the moorland if not controlled. Working with Natural England, the governments conservation advisors, and local grazing tenants that have suitably sourced livestock, Mulgrave Estate are beginning to turn the tide on their heather moorland habitat decline.

Pupils from Lythe School joined Mulgrave Estate staff for a further hedge planting session on Friday afternoon. The dedicated Lythe school hedge is now complete – all 118 metres of it. A mixture of Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hazel, Holly and Crab Apple were planted at 7 plants per metre. Rabbit spirals and canes were added to protect the hedge until it is fully established.
Thanks again to Mr Stansfield, staff and all the children from the school – you all did a marvellous job and we all look forward to seeing it growing in the spring.

A special prize was also awarded to Isaac Arnold aged 5 for his detailed painting of a Red Fallow Deer.

25 children from the local primary school in Lythe assisted Mulgrave Estate staff to plant 800 hedge plants as part of National Tree Week. The new hedge is part of our Countryside Stewardship hedge and tree planting commitments over this winter. After the recent heavy rain the soil was easy to dig but it made conditions rather muddy ! I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and did a great job. Many thanks to Mr Stansfield and staff, we look forward to planting some more in the new year.
