The Cranborne Chase farmer cluster is a network of farmers and landowners united by their passion for far-reaching and long-lasting environmental improvement and working hard to make improvements for wildlife such as habitat management and creation, as well as adapting their farming methods to encourage the regeneration of depleted soils and help rebuild local biodiversity networks.
Making connections with the people who enjoy this landscape as well as local community groups such as schools and conservation interest groups, is crucial to the success of the Cluster.
Wildlife does not thrive in isolation, so managing and connecting habitats across farming boundaries can deliver greater benefits.
