A nature-friendly west Norfolk farm has carried off a top conservation prize for blending productive agriculture with extensive environmental work.

AR Wilson Ltd, based at Manor Farm in East Winch, won the 2022 Ian MacNicol Memorial Trophy, awarded by Norfolk FWAG.

The award celebrates the most significant contribution to wildlife conservation among Norfolk’s farmers.

It assesses factors including the conservation and creation of wildlife habitats, how well they are integrated into the farm business – and the “overall enthusiasm of the farmer and how effective they have been communicating this to the wider farming community”.

The runner-up was Deepdale Farm in Burnham Deepdale on the north Norfolk coast, a 635-acre farm which has converted to organic and “regenerative farming” principles.

Chris Hill, Agricultural Editor from the Eastern Daily Press published a comprehensive article on the awards.
