Regenerative grazing

Using Holistic Management and Regenerative Principles to run a profitable, biodiverse business

Huntly, Aberdeenshire

Nikki Yoxall farms with her husband James, using Holistic Management and Regenerative Principles to run a profitable but highly bio-diverse business. Year round grazing is key to their system so managing for winter stockpile and wildlife habitat and plant species richness feature heavily. All animals are 100% pasture fed, and their system also makes use of silvopasture for animal health and welfare benefits as well as climate resilience.
