Our Barn Owl Project was set up in 2011 to help us measure the benefits of our Fair to Nature farming standards on the environment and its wildlife, using Barn Owls to show if the environment is healthy or not.

So far we’ve involved 65 Fair to Nature farmers and are monitoring 140 nest boxes over 77 potential Barn Owl territories.
