Regenerative farming presents a model of food production rooted in community engagement, sustainability and healthy ecosystems. Rebecca Tyers makes its case from Plotgate Farm in Somerset.
In a quiet village in rural Somerset there is a winding dirt track that leads seemingly nowhere. Past the gentle hubbub of village life and the fields with rows of hay bales piled high, the track bends around to the right. If you walk onwards, with tall wildgrass and wildflowers on either side, you’ll arrive at a farm gate.
