Sitting on top of the hills of southwest Devon overlooking the sea, Village Farm is a living example of regenerative agriculture.
A little over a year ago, Rebecca Hosking and business partner Tim Green - who made the BBC2 documentary 'A Farm for The Future' - became tenants of 175 acres of exhausted soils.
Turning a windswept, misused, coastal farm into an abundant landscape working with nature is their goal; their approach - holistic planned grazing.
Rebecca Hosking, farmer and agroecologist, explains: "Holistic planned grazing is all about mimicking the natural migration of a wild herd across the landscape. This is the fastest way to build soil fertility on a large scale."
2015 is the international year of soils. Farming with nature, Village Farm, is one of the many and inspiring examples of an agriculture working to build soils and providing good food for everyone without damage to the natural world and wildlife.
