“I have learned from their [Harbour Care] ethos and incorporated them into my farming systems.
Everybody should have an eye for the future, and make a start on protecting their waterways. As long as they make a start, they are going to make some progress and over time perhaps all water sheds will be protected and it makes good sense for a commercial business as well – it's sustainable over time.”
David Peacocke – Landowner, Raglan
