FWAG works for us because it’s a very hands-on approach, Henry and Heidi have local knowledge, I can call them and ask them for advice when I need it.

It works because they offer advice, and they have knowledge of farming as well as conservation, they get the balance of both just right. They’ve helped show us how farming and conservation can work hand in hand.

The changes it’s made to the farm and the working environment are great, it’s a pleasure to work with Norfolk FWAG.
