ALA North East

Wednesday 4 July 2018

The ALA North East Group is holding a summer visit to the Nafferton Ecological Farm Group at Nafferton Farm, Stocksfield, Northumberland on Wednesday, 4 July.

The Nafferton Ecological Farming Group (NEFG) is a research unit within the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences at Newcastle University.

NEFG researchers focus on low-input and organic approaches to crop and livestock management, and are based at Nafferton, one of the university’s research farms.

Since 2001, one half of Nafferton Farm has been used for conventional farming, the other half certified for organic use. The farm thus provides a unique research facility for comparing and improving organic and conventional farming systems.

Members and Non-Members are welcome to attend.
