CRT Trustee and Lark Rise Farmer Tim Scott
CRT Trustee Tim Scott comments: “We all have a responsibility to look after our environment. On Lark Rise Farm in Barton, I recognise the complex and interlinking systems of flora and fauna and amend my farming practices accordingly. This category is to acknowledge other farmers that are following the same mindset in the Three Counties area.”

Tim Scott farms CRT’s Lark Rise Farm in Barton which in 2020 received RedList Revival awards for top 1% highest density of farmland bird species such as grey partridge and yellowhammer and top 10% including linnets and Skylarks.

The CRT will be presenting the award to farmers who proactively utilise sensitive and sympathetic farming practices to encourage and protect the species and habitats on their farmland whilst also producing quality food alongside what way they communicate their conservation approaches to a local community.
