Paul Cherry


Paul Cherry farms 1,000 hectares with his brother in North Hertfordshire.

He is passionate about soil health and in 2011 they moved the arable operation to a completely no-till system and have since gone away from using any insecticides. The farm grows a range of cereals and legumes using a strictly regenerative farming technique – minimal soil disturbance, use of cover crops whenever possible and integrating livestock into the arable rotation.

They also run a 130 head beef shorthorn suckler cow herd fattening all the young stock on a purely pasture and straw based diet and mob stocking the herd on pastures and herbal leys in the summer months. No fertiliser or wormers are used on the grassland or livestock.

Paul and his family host and run the Groundswell Conference, which in its 7th year has become the flagship event for regenerative agriculture attracting speakers and delegates from across the globe.

Weston Park Farms create compost, turning muck into a more stable product. Cattle muck is mixed with woodchip to balance the C and N. The temperature is monitored to ensure it reaches 65 degrees before turning to aerate, this is done two to three times. Come and see the turner in action.
