William Scale

William Scale

William Scale has 15 years of experience of continuous no tillage farming and is based in Pembrokeshire on probably the most Westerly no tilled farm in the UK. With an annual rainfall of about 50 inches a year, the motivation to preserve soils against erosion and to keep driving down costs on the family farm has always been paramount. A keen conservationist,  a Nuffield Scholar and a Churchill Fellow, Will has travelled and met a range of farmers and landowners over the years relevant to the field of Zero Tillage, Holistic Management, Regenerative Agriculture and Environmental Conservation and is going to share his ideas and experience at Groundswell.
