Holkham Estate's head of conservation Jake Fiennes, brother of Ralph Fiennes, releases book
An event that took place at Holkham Estate saw Jake Fiennes, head of conservation in conversation having released his long awaited book Land Healer: How Farming Can Save Britain’s Countryside.
An audience joined Mr Fiennes whose surname is known in many households through his actor brother Ralph and explorer Sir Ranulph, as he was interviewed by Farming Today presenter, Anna Hill.
He is paving the way with a revolutionary approach to land management, which has nurtured species diversity and risen crop yields across the Holkham National Nature Reserve and the wider estate.
The inspiring evening gave an idea for those attending to hear about his motivations, ideas and optimism for the future of farming, biodiversity and conservation.
Those who attended also got their very own copy of the book to take home.
The book has been praised by experts as he describes his 'mission to restore the health of the English countryside.'
With a chapter entitled Hedge Porn and the use of expletives it may be appealing to the younger generations who will see Mr Fiennes 'passionate, reasonable and achievable vision for the British countryside.'
As Mr Fiennes eloquently puts it when he said: "I firmly believe that the natural world is not totally f****d. We can fix it."
