Groundswell. Where is the press coverage?

The men from AHDB ..... in a session said we should stop keeping so many breeding sheep and fattening so many lambs. But should keep a big pet flock of rare breeds to eat the living mulch and cover crops instead, as there wasn’t a big enough market for lamb so we would knacker the job grazing cover crops productively ........ excellent work guys .....
I'm sure you put them right....🤣
Who is that guy from AHDB. Name and shame as we pay his b###dy wages. what do they want a glorified park!!

And to an extent yes. Beavers, trees, public access.

Whilst there were some amazing messages at groundswell there was a small camp of the “how to make your massive land asset you own keep paying you lots of money without having to farm and produce much food”.
