Case Study - Anthony Becvar

Last updated: 10 Feb 2016

Anthony Becvar from Little Goldsmiths Farm, Blackboys, Uckfield, East Sussex supports CFE by retaining his field margins

CFESussexmarginsAnthonyBecvar2Arable/grassland farm in the High Weald, on heavy clay – 100 acres of arable, 100 acres of grass. 

My margins were under Countryside Stewardship (CSS) in 2002. In 2012, when the Stewardship agreement came to an end, I transferred the margins into Entry Level Stewardship (ELS). They originally varied in width from between 4m to 8m under the flexible rules of CSS, but now they are all 6m wide for ELS. In total there are 2.5ha of margins.
