Farming for soil health and biodiversity at every turn
Gutchpool is a small family run grassland farm in north Dorset, a stone's throw from the Saxon hill town of Shaftesbury.
We farm following regenerative principles, without any pesticides or chemicals, and we believe that having 100% grass fed livestock on the farm is integral to a sustainable farming future. By not disturbing the soil we keep the carbon in, while the sheep convert the grass to protein, giving us meat which is low in saturated fat, while high in Omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
The way we farm encourages microbial activity for a healthy soil and biodiversity, evident in the abundance of wildlife - particularly birds, butterflies and invertebrates - that we are now seeing all over the farm.
