Nicholas has farmed at Vine House Farm since 1964. His inspiration and enthusiasm for farming and wildlife is the reason why Vine House Farm Bird Foods was born. The team around him has grown over the years, to not only manage a growing farm, but build a bird seed business too. With his team behind him, Nicholas is able to dedicate more time to his passion of caring for wildlife.
Nicholas researches and trials conservation ideas on his farm and then shares results and advice with other farmers and conservation bodies. He has come up with advice for the best way to harvest oil seed rape, information which is now given out nationally by the RSPB.
