Human Scale Regenerative Farming

Big Top

Richard Perkins built up the influential Ridgedale Farm on a shoestring budget in the harsh climatic, regulatory and economic conditions of Sweden. Here he breaks down his approach to land planning, economics and management necessary to make small farms thrive. Richard integrates holistic management, keyline design and various other ecological design approaches in his work, and has designed farms of all scales across 4 continents. Whilst the presentation concentrates on his work at his home farm, it embodies attitudes and thinking applicable to any farm that places ecological regeneration on the same footing as economic success and satisfied staff and customers.
