My name is Andrew Baker and I have been managing Aishe Barton since 1997 in partnership with my parents, Michael and Pamela, having taken a conscious decision to leave surveying and make my living by farming.
Aishe Barton is a 770 acre arable & stock farm located just north of Exeter on the spectacular Exe Valley.
I have no illusions about the difficulties facing the farming industry but I know that we have to be positive. My big passion is managing the wildlife and landscape to the best of my ability and I want to marry this up with prodcuing wholesome crops in a profitable way. For me this is what Integrated Farm Management is all aboutl it just makes good business sense.
Aishe Barton became a LEAF Demonstration Farm in 2003. LEAF is committed to a viable agriculture which is environmentally and socially acceptable and ensures the continuity of supply of wholesome, affordable food while conserving the fabric and wildlife of the British countryside.
