REGENERATIVE FARMING

FARM TO FORK 

Gate Street is a 3rd generation, family-run farm set in the heart of The Surrey Hills. We are passionate about providing nutrient-rich produce in keeping with traditional, regenerative farming methods that protect and enhance the local ecology. Get to see a bit of Gate Street in action here

OUR JOURNEY TO AGROECOLOGY

Our regenerative approach helps to reverse the effects of climate change and global warming bringing balance back to the local environment by way of: 

CARBON SEQUESTRATION

A process that captures, returns and stores atmospheric carbon back into the soil - where it belongs.

 

MOB GRAZING

A rotational grazing method that moves livestock from one paddock to another every 2-3 days; a tool that can improve soil health and productivity. 

WILDLIFE CORRIDORS

A means to bridge the gap between habitats, creating biodiversity-friendly spaces and safe routes for animals to move more freely. 

AS NATURE INTENDED... (OUR GOALS)

In order to restore balance and transition fully to a sustainable agricultural system we aim to: 

1) IMPROVE SOIL HEALTH 

via carbon sequestration using regenerative farming methods such as mob grazing.

 

2) INCREASE SITE BIODIVERSITY 

by introducing wildlife corridors, connecting habitats and creating safe environments where wildlife can flourish. 

3) PRODUCE 100% GRASS FINISHED LIVESTOCK 

which are not only great tasting, but rich in nutrients and Omega 3. 

4) REDUCE WASTE

by promoting a circular economy; using (and reusing) 100% recyclable and environmentally-friendly materials. 

5) WORK TOWARDS CARBON NEUTRALITY 

by reducing our own carbon footprint and helping others do the same via our work with Carbon Footprint UK.

6) We love dogs! However, DOGS MUST BE ON A LEAD when passing through our fields, not only for their own safety, and yours, but protect livestock who scare easily...especially lambs!

OUR LAND

Set in the Surrey Hills we have the Greensand Way running through the heart of the farm allowing public access. If you ever visit you might like to know a little more about our:

FORESTRY

We have 52 acres of forestry supporting the bird population and providing wildlife corridors and habitats for a variety of species.   

 

GRAZING

With 198 acres of grazing land we have subdivided the fields to allow a rotational / mob grazing programme.

 

SOIL

 Our soil is sandy with patches of clay presenting water management challenges throughout the year

 

WETLAND

A brook runs through the centre of the property providing wet ground for the cricket bat willows. 

FUN FACT...

Yewtree Nob is listed in the Doomsday Book!
