“If I wanted to invest in the land it’s much too expensive to use it for ecological schemes, it’s simply the fact that these schemes are not being paid very well but farming is, so the only choice you have as a farmer is that if you have to pay a lot for the land, you have to use it intensively.”

The land is owned 50:50 by the farmer and the investor, with an agreement covering biodiversity targets and how the land will be managed, sharing risk and responsibility.

The farmer and investor co-design the biodiversity objectives and management agreement.

“We need to find a balance between the economic and the ecological benefits,” says Mr Van der Valk, who farms with his father Jacob.
