After growing spring barley on our field beside the river for several years, we were looking for an alternative crop which would tolerate perodic flooding. We now have 10 hectares of Short Rotation Coppice willow growing for biomass. Our first harvest was in 2012, our second in 2016 and the crop was sold locally. This crop has some disadvantages - the main one being the harvesting and transport costs - but we believe that it is very ecofriendly, good for wildlife and very pleasant to walk or ride round! The plantation will be harvested every three or four years and regrows very rapidly.
