Farmer and conservationist Nicholas Watts MBE has recently taken on the role of Chairman of the Countryside Restoration Trust’s Board of Trustees. We are extremely grateful for all the hours and dedication he has given the charity over the last few months, attending meetings, writing letters and supporting the staff.

However, it isn't only the CRT that Nicholas supports! His business, Vine House Farm, have recently been celebrating the magnificent achievement of donating £2million to their charity partner, The Wildlife Trusts, over 14 years through the sale of its wild bird food mixes. These include sunflower seeds, red millet and canary seeds which are all grown on the wildlife-friendly farm in Lincolnshire.

Nicholas and Vine House Farm have also been on The One Show recently to discuss the importance of wildlife on farming.
