As a child, Harry Boglione established the kitchen gardens at Petersham House and since then has developed his passion and knowledge for growing natural, fine produce. Taking ownership of Haye Farm in Devon in 2014, together with his partner Emily and their young family – Harry Boglione maintains the 90-acre mixed organic farm set in the breath-taking hills of East Devon.
Their aspiration is to create sustainable food systems, whilst encouraging an increase in biodiversity and wildlife. Rather than viewing each individual crop or herd on the farm as a single entity each performs a role in the wider system, where each elements’ externalities support another. Systems are rotational and continually moving. This improves soil fertility, ensuring crop productivity whilst maintaining healthy plant and animal welfare. It also eliminates the build-up of disease, parasites, pests, nitrates and other negative impacts on the land and environment.
