Airfield Estate’s hedgerows not only preserve the heritage and charm of the countryside, they also offer food, shelter, hideaways and highways for urban wildlife. While foxes and field mice hide among the bramble, insect pollinators visit the flowers growing around the hedgerows. Over 1 year, we counted 33 species of bees and 41 species of hoverflies visiting the flowers at the edges of Airfield’s crop fields.
From nurturing biodiversity to promoting healthy soils, Airfield’s hedgerows are an important component of Airfield’s sustainable and regenerative farming practices.
