Showsley Farm covers 600 hectares in Towcester, Northamptonshire. Showsley Farm is owned by Carl Krefting, who directed an international food business and decided 10 years ago to move into farming. Carl’s son, Fred Kefting, is taking over the farm with a strong commitment to transform the Farm into regenerative agriculture, share their learnings with other farmers and set an example for regenerative farms in the UK. Carl and Fred Krefting joined Soil Heroes to learn from and work with a group of like-minded farmers to together confront the challenges of farming in the future, including volatile commodity prices and climate change. “Very concrete, Soil Heroes offers us revenue streams based on nature restoration, and innovative tools and techniques for on-going (regenerative) farm improvements” says Fred Krefting. Showsley is set to become one of the first farms in the UK to be privately paid for farming using regenerative farming practices, compensating CO2, increasing biodiversity, and saving water. On average, by farming regeneratively, Showsley Farm will sequester 4.5 tonnes of CO2, and generate 400m2 of biodiversity, providing homes for bees, butterflies, birds and other flora and fauna.
