Landscape tools

Farming with Nature has been refined on our farms in Latvia and Lithuania. Here, we have used landscape tools throughout the farms. An action that is already bearing fruit. In our 2019 bird monitoring we have noticed increased abundance and diversity of birds in areas where we have used the landscape tools.

We have also identified ten significant environmental, cultural and recreational sites totaling 265 hectares. For each of these sites, we have created a detailed management plan and placed them under an internal covenant that protects them in perpetuity.

Habitats woven throughout the productive landscape balance conservation and production; improving biodiversity, connectivity and ecosystem services without effecting productivity
