Reflections from Scrutopia 2021

It has been another busy year here at Scrutopia and we were thrilled to be able to hold the Scrutopia Summer School events again, and welcome friends from across the world. More locally, the Braydon Forest Future Association has gained support and momentum. You can read more about this under the menus above. The next steps for 2022 are to apply for funding as part of a Farm Cluster group.

Our five-year Countryside Stewardship agreement comes to an end in December, and we are entering into one of the new Environment Land Management Schemes: The Sustainable Farming Incentive, this is a new three-year pilot scheme which will feed into the new structure of Rural Payments. We will continue to manage Sundey Hill Farm in a way that benefits the environment, the wildlife, and the landscape.
